Distances in divalent metal hydroxides that have the CdI2-type structure. (a) Experimentally determined values of d(M-M) against d(M-O). (b) d(M-O) determined by experiment against the value calculated using ionic radii. (c) h(oct) against r(M). The data are for Mg(OH)2 (Catti et al., 1995BB22; Cerný et al., 1995BB24; Chakoumakos et al., 1997BB25; Desgranges et al., 1996BB30; Isetti, 1965BB49; Zigan & Rothbauer, 1967BB118), Ni(OH)2 (Kazimirov et al., 2010BB58), Co(OH)2 (Pertlik, 1999BB88), Fe(OH)2 (Parise et al., 2000BB83), Mn(OH)2 (Christensen & Ollivier, 1972BB26), Cd(OH)2 (Bertrand & Dusausoy, 1970BB8), Ca(OH)2 (Busing & Levy, 1957BB20) and Zn(OH)2 (Baneyeva & Popova, 1969BB6). There are two data points for [beta]-Zn(OH)2: one calculated from Baneyeva & Popova's structure that is labelled `Zn cBan' and a second from this work that is labelled `Zn c1'.  [article HTML]
