The structure of NaInAs2O7, prepared by solid-state reaction, contains InO6 octahedra and As2O7 diarsenate groups. These are linked by In—O—As bridges to form a three-dimensional framework containing cages within which the Na+ ions are located.

The structure of (NH4)4(H6ZnMo6O24).6H2O is composed of (H6ZnMo6O24)4− anions, NH4+ cations and water molecules linked by hydrogen bonds. The anion is formed from six edge-sharing octahedral MoO6 units surrounding a central ZnO6 octahedron with all metal ions lying in a common plane.

Os3Sn15O14 is a metal-rich stannate containing Os-centered Sn6 octahedra. The OsSn6 units are linked to form triple chains in which the oxidation state of the linking Sn atoms is +1 and the oxidation state of the terminal Sn atoms is +2.

K2MgWO2(PO4)2 undergoes at least five phase transitions between room temperature and its melting point. The structure of the room-temperature form is triclinic pseudo-tetragonal (space group P1) and is composed of chains of alternately corner-linked [WO6] and [MgO6] octahedra connected via [PO4] tetrahedra.

Special and virtual issues

Acta Crystallographica Section C is planning special issues on

The Structural Chemistry of Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysts

NMR Crystallography.

Full details are available on the special issues page.

The latest virtual issue, featuring Coordination polymers and with an introduction by Len Barbour, was published in July 2014.
