A newly synthesized one-dimensional (1D) hydrogen-bonded (H-bonded) rhodium(II)-$$eta$$$$^{5}$$-semiquinone complex, [Cp$$^{*}$$Rh($$eta$$$$^{5}$$-$$p$$-HSQ-Me$$_{4}$$)]PF$$_{6}$$ exhibits a paraelectric-;antiferroelectric second-order phase transition at 237.1 K. Neutron and X-ray crystal structure analyses reveal that the H-bonded proton is disordered over two sites in the room-temperature (RT) phase. The phase transition would arise from this proton disorder together with rotation or libration of the Cp$$^{*}$$ ring and PF$$_{6}$$ ion. The relative permittivity $$varepsilon$$$$_{b}$$' along the H-bonded chains reaches relatively high values (ca., 130) in the RT phase.
