Rietveld refinement using powder neutron diffraction data shows that the structure of Tl2BeF4, from room temperature to 1.5 K, belongs to the ortho­rhom­bic space group Pnma, without evidence of any phase transition.

The isotypic ortho­rhom­bic dihydrogendiphosphates K2M(H2P2O7)2·2H2O (M = Ni, Cu, Zn) contain octa­hedrally coordinated M2+ cations in M(H2P2O7)2·2H2O units connected by K—O bonds and hydrogen bonds.

Bis(methylammonium) octaantimony(III) dodecasulfide persulfide, (CH3NH3)2[Sb8S12(S2)], contains pairs of [Sb4S7]2− chains joined through an unusual persulfide bond to create infinite double [Sb2S14]2− chains. The double chains contain (Sb8S10) apertures, in which methylammonium cations, formed by decomposition of 2-methylpropane-1,2-diamine during the synthesis, are located.

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.
