Cover illustration: -Facial selectivities of diastereotopic ketones: p-bromobenzoates of 4-hetero-1-decalinols. View of the molecular structure of trans-4-oxa-1-decalinyl p-bromobenzoate with the atom-numbering scheme and 30% probability displacement ellipsoids. H atoms are shown as small spheres of arbitrary radii. See Parvez, Yadav & Balamurugan [Acta Cryst. (2001), C57, 1084-1088].
The title compound is a new oxychloride. Its structure is composed of layers separated by a van der Waals gap. The layers consist of edge-sharing chains of [InO4Cl2] octahedra linked through [TeO3] trigonal pyramids.
The structure of Li2AlB5O10 is composed of [B5O10]5− groups and AlO4 tetrahedra. All the hexagonal B–O rings in this structure can be divided into two groups, with one group approximately parallel and the other perpendicular to the c axis.
