In-situ laser synthesis of Nd-Al-O coatings: the role of sublattice cations in eutectic formation

I. de Francisco, J. A. Bea, A. Vegas, J. B. Carda and G. F. de la Fuente


Accepted 13 January 2015

Structure of Pigment Yellow 181 di­methylsulfoxide N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone solvate from XRPD + DFT-D

J. van de Streek


Accepted 7 January 2015

Entrance and diffusion pathway of CO2 and di­methyl ether in silicalite-1 zeolite channels as determined by single-crystal XRD structural analysis

S. Fujiyama, K. Yoza, N. Kamiya, K. Nishi and Y. Yokomori

Synopsis: Adsorption pathways in MFI-type zeolite channels were investigated by a selective sealing method. CO2 enters mainly into the straight channel mouths and diffuses, and dimethyl ether enters mainly into the sinusoidal channel mouths and diffuses.


Accepted 7 January 2015

Crystal structure of magnesium dichloride decahydrate determined by X-ray and neutron diffraction under high pressure

K. Komatsu, A. Shinozaki, S. Machida, T. Matsubayashi, M. Watanabe, H. Kagi, A. Sano-Furukawa and T. Hattori

Synopsis: The previously unknown form of the magnesium dichloride hydrate series, MgCl2·10H2O, is discovered under high pressure. The structures of this newly found compound and its deuterated counterpart are solved by in-situ powder synchrotron X-ray and spallation neutron diffraction.


Accepted 26 December 2014

Structure of Pb-rich chabournéite from Jas Roux, France

C. Biagioni, Y. Moëlo, G. Favreau, V. Bourgoin and J.-C. Boulliard

Synopsis: This study investigates the real crystal structure of the thallium sulfosalt chabournéite, comparing it with the closely related homeotypes dalnegroite and protochabournéite


Accepted 17 December 2014

Calcium tartrate esahydrate, CaC4H4O6·6H2O: a structural and spectroscopic study

G. Ventruti, F. Scordari, F. Bellatreccia, G. Della Ventura and A. Sodo

Synopsis: The crystal structure of calcium tartrate esahydrate, CaC4H4O6·6H2O, has been solved from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data and refined in space group P21212. Micro-Raman and FT-IR spectroscopic data are also provided.


Accepted 9 December 2014

Charge distribution as a tool to investigate structural details. III. Extension to description in terms of anion-centred polyhedra

J.-G. Eon and M. Nespolo

Synopsis: The charge distribution method is generalized to anion-centred coordination polyhedra and the advantages of this description of some crystal structures are presented.


Accepted 4 December 2014

The square-planar to flattened-tetrahedral CuX42- (X = Cl, Br) structural phase transition in 1,2,6-tri­methylpyridinium salts

A. Kelley, S. Nalla and M. R. Bond

Synopsis: Each (1,2,6-trimethylpyridinium)2CuX4 (X = Cl, Br) compound exhibits a structural phase transition in which the isolated complex anion geometry transforms from square-planar to flattened-tetrahedral (at 323 K for Cl, 225 K for Br), contrary to traditional expectations that such transitions only occur in chloride salts (as green-to-yellow thermochromism) in the presence of strong N-H hydrogen bonding.


Accepted 27 October 2014

Structural investigations in BaFe2 - xRuxAs2 as a function of Ru and temperature

S. Sharma, A. Bharathi, K. Vinod, C. S. Sundar, V. Srihari, S. Sen, H. Ghosh, A. K. Sinha and S. K. Deb
