The structure of Pb2HgCrO6 consists of isolated [CrO4]2− tetrahedra, [HgO2]2− dumb-bells and stereochemically active Pb2+ ions with coordination 3+5.

In Bi2B8O15, the Bi atom is coordinated to five or six O atoms. The B atoms exhibit two kinds of hybridization, sp2 and sp3, seen in the BO3 triangles and BO4 tetrahedra, respectively. Three BO3 triangles are connected to form a B3O6 planar ring. All atoms in the structure are connected together to form an infinite three-dimensional network.

The structure of the polyoxomolybdate [Na_{6}^{+}(H2O)16(NH2CH2COO)_{2}^{-}]4+·{Na+[H9Mo_{10}^{\rm VI}Mo_{8}^{\rm V}O56(NH2CH2COO)_{2}^{-}]5−}4−·20H2O is reported. The 18 Mo atoms connected by O atoms form a centrosymmetric girdle-like structure, in which MoV–MoV units are found. An Na+ cation occupies the central hole of the girdle, while four Na+ cations are bonded to O atoms on the girdle edge. The girdles are linked into a one-dimensional chain by the remaining Na+ cations.

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.
