Abstract: In the title complex, [La(NO3)2(bib)2(H2O)2]·0.5bib·H2O [bib is 1,4-bis(1-imidazolyl)benzene, C12H10N4], the LaIII atom is coordinated by two N atoms from two bib ligands and eight O atoms from three nitrate and two water ligands. This mononuclear complex is further extended into a three-dimensional structure via hydrogen bonds with free bib and water molecules of crystallization, the former lying on inversion centers.
