Abstract: The title compound, [Na(C12H8N2O8P)], consists of one Na+ cation and one bis(p-nitrophenyl)phosphate anion with a considerable distortion of the phosphate tetrahedron due to the presence of two P-O ester bonds. The anion bridges five Na+ cations whereby each cation is chelated by the nitro O atoms of one anion and bonded via a nitro O atom and phosphate O atoms to four other anions. This bridging arrangement leads to the formation of double layers parallel to (001). Adjacent layers are linked through weak C-HO hydrogen bonds.
