High-resolution synchrotron data have been used to determine the splitting of K sites in the Pna21 structure of KTiOPO4 (KTP) at room temperature.

The crystal structure of Ag2Hg2(TeO4)3 is made up of 1[(TeO2/1O4/2)({TeO2/1O2/2}2O4/2)] chains with TeVI in octa­hedral coordination. The chains are linked by distorted AgO6 and HgO6 polyhedra into a three-dimensional network.

A new three-dimensional bimetallic tellurium halogenide, Ca2CuTe4O10Cl2, was synthesized by a transport reaction starting with CaO, CuO, CuCl2 and TeO2, and was characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The three-dimensional framework is built from anionic {[CuTe4O10Cl2]4}n layers parallel to (0\overline{1}0) and connected via Ca—O bonds. The anionic layers are formed by two types of polyhedra, namely centrosymmetric CuO4Cl2 octa­hedra and TeO4E distorted bipyramids (E being the 5s2 lone pair of TeIV).

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.
