The title compound, (CH6N3)2[La(NO3)5(H2O)2], contains a network of guanidinium cations and the previously unseen di­aqua­pentakis­(nitrato)­lanthanum dianion, in which 12 O atoms surround La in a distorted icosahedral arrangement. A network of N—H⋯O and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds helps to consolidate the crystal packing, resulting in a three-dimensional network. The La cation, one N atom and one O atom occupy a twofold axis.

Comment

The title compound, (I[link]) (Fig. 1[link]), contains a new lanthanum/nitrate/water complex anion. The La3+ cation, which occupies a twofold symmetry axis, is surrounded by five O,O′-bidentate nitrate groups [mean La—O = 2.693 (3) Å] and two water mol­ecules (Table 1[link]). The resulting O12 grouping (Fig. 2[link]) surrounding the La atom is a distorted icosahedron. As expected, the icosahedral O⋯O contacts associated with the nitrate ions [2.149 (2)–2.1627 (19) Å] are much shorter than the other contacts (O⋯O > 2.8 Å). Atoms O1, O4, O7, O3i and O6i [symmetry code: (i) −x, y, ½ − z] are approximately coplanar (r.m.s. deviation from the mean plane = 0.074 Å) and the symmetry-generated set O3/O6/O1i/O4i/O7i have the same r.m.s. deviation. The La cation is displaced by 0.9924 (7) Å from each set of five O atoms. The dihedral angle between the two sets of O atoms is 0.91 (2)°. The propeller-shaped guanidinium species in (I[link]) is unexceptional, with a typical mean C—N bond length of 1.314 (4) Å, indicating that the usual model of electronic delocalization (Harrison, 2003[Harrison, W. T. A. (2003). Acta Cryst. E59, o769-o770.]), leading to a C—N bond order of 1.33, is applicable here.[link]

[Scheme 1]

As well as Coulombic and van der Waals forces, the component species in (I) interact by way of O—H⋯O and N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds (Table 2[link]). The O—H⋯O bonds link adjacent [La(H2O)2(NO3)5]2− anions into an infinite (001) sheet (Fig. 3[link]). The guanidinium cations crosslink the (001) anionic sheets into a three-dimensional network (Fig. 4[link]), with mean H⋯O, N⋯O and N—H⋯O values of 2.14 Å, 2.973 (5) Å and 162°, respectively. The guanidinium N4—H3 vertex does not participate in hydrogen bonds.

La/nitrate/water anions related to the [La(H2O)2(NO3)5]2− species seen in (I[link]) include [La(H2O)(NO3)5]2− (Evans et al., 2002[Evans, D. J., Junk, P. C. & Smith, M. K. (2002). New J. Chem. 26, 1043-1048.]) and a number of examples of the hexakis­(nitrato) [La(NO3)6]3− species (Cui et al., 1999[Cui, Y., Zheng, F., Chen, J. & Huang, J. (1999). Acta Cryst. C55, IUC9900065.]; Drew et al., 2000[Drew, M. G. B., Iveson, P. B., Hudson, M. J., Liljenzin, J. O., Spjuth, L., Cordier, P.-Y., Enarsson, A., Hill, C. & Madic, C. (2000). J. Chem. Soc. Dalton Trans. pp. 821-830.]). The [La2(H2O)7(NO3)6] dinuclear cluster contains bridging nitrate groups (Weakley, 1982[Weakley, T. J. R. (1982). Inorg. Chem. Acta, 63, 161-168.]).

Experimental

The following solutions were mixed at 293 K in a Petri dish, resulting in a clear solution: 5 ml of 0.1 M guanidinium hydro­chloride ([CH6N3]+Cl), 5 ml of 0.1 M lanthanum nitrate, and 1 ml of 1 M HCl. Colourless block-like crystals of (I[link]) grew over the course of a few days as the water evaporated at 293 K.

The title compound, (I) (Fig. 1), contains a new lanthanum/nitrate/water complex anion. The La3+ cation, which occupies a twofold symmetry axis, is surrounded by five O,O'-bidentate nitrate groups [mean La—O = 2.693 (3) Å] and two water molecules (Table 1). The resulting O12 grouping (Fig. 2) surrounding the La atom is a distorted icosahedron. As expected, the icosahedral O···O contacts associated with the nitrate ions [2.149 (2)–2.1627 (19) Å] are much shorter than the other contacts (O···O > 2.8 Å). Atoms O1, O4, O7, O3i and O6i [symmetry code: (i) -x, y, 1/2 - z] are approximately coplanar (r.m.s. deviation from the best plane = 0.074 Å) and the symmetry-generated set O3/O6/O1i/O4i/O7i have the same r.m.s. deviation. The La cation is displaced by 0.9924 (7) Å from each set of five O atoms. The dihedral angle between the two sets of O atoms is 0.91 (2)°. The propeller-shaped gaunidinium species in (I) is unexceptional with a typical mean C—N bond length of 1.314 (4) Å, indicating that the usual model of electronic delocalization (Harrison, 2003), leading to a C—N bond order of 1.33 is applicable here.

As well as Coulombic and van der Waals forces, the component species in (I) interact by way of O—H···O and N—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 2). The O—H···O bonds link adjacent [La(H2O)2(NO3)5]2- anions into an infinite (100) sheet (Fig. 3). The guanidinium moieties crosslink the (100) anionic sheets into a three-dimensional network (Fig. 4), with mean H···O, N···O and N—H···O values of 2.14 Å, 2.973 (5) Å and 162°, respectively. One guanidinium vertex (N4—H3) does not participate in hydrogen bonds.

La/nitrate/water anions related to the [La(H2O)2(NO3)5]2- species seen in (I) include [La(H2O)(NO3)5]2- (Evans et al., 2002) and a number of examples of the hexakis(nitrato) [La(NO3)6]3- species (Cui et al., 1999; Drew et al., 2000). The [La2(H2O)7(NO3)6] dinuclear cluster contains bridging nitrate groups (Weakley, 1982).

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
