Highlighted illustration

Cover illustration: The hydrogen-bonded sheet formed by amino-carboxylate interactions between peptide molecules in L-prolyl-L-serine monohydrate. Side-chain atoms have been omitted. Two head-to-tail C(8) chains have been highlighted vertically and single dashed lines indicate N-H...O hydrogen bonds between peptide molecules. Double dashed lines show the hydrogen bonding between water molecules producing the water wire. See Görbitz & Yadav [Acta Cryst. (2013), C69, 556-559].

Rb2Cd5As4 and Rb2Zn5Sb4 are new ternary pnictides with a complex orthorhombic structure. In the absence of homoatomic interactions, the chemical bonding can be understood as (Rb+)2(Cd2+)5(As3−)4 and (Rb+)2(Zn2+)5(Sb3−)4, respectively, following the Zintl concept.

The crystal structure of a new oxyfluoro­tellurate(IV) compound, InTe2O5F, consists of a three-dimensional framework formed by InO4F2 o­cta­hedra linked through the F atoms, giving rise to helical chains inter­connected via Te2O5 units.

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.
