Incommensurate atomic density waves in the high-pressure IVb phase of barium

Using single-crystal synchrotron radiation X-ray experiments, the host–guest structure of the Ba IVb high-pressure phase has been solved for the first time.

This model reveals an atomic density wave and its pressure-dependent evolution between 16.5 and 19.6 GPa.

Structure of salts of lithium chloride and lithium hexa­fluoro­phosphate as solvates with pyridine and vinyl­pyridine and structural comparisons: (C5H5N)LiPF6, [p-(CH2=CH)C5H5N]LiPF6, [(C5H5N)LiCl]n, and [p-(CH2=CH)C5H5N]2Li(μ-Cl)2Li[p-(CH2=CH)C5H5N]2

Dissolution of LiCl or LiPF6 into pyridine or vinyl­pyridine and slow vapor diffusion of this solution with diethyl ether gives solvates of the lithium salts coordinated by pyridine ligands. In the case of the hexa­fluorophosphate salts, the chemical species formed are similar, namely binary salts with hexa­fluoro­phosphate counter-ions. In contrast, the solvates with LiCl are structurally dissimilar, with one forming a one-dimensional ionic polymer of fused LiCl rhombs and the other crystallizing as an isolated mol­ecular unit with a complex array of van der Waals inter­actions of neighboring mol­ecules.

Data mining of iron(II) and iron(III) bond valence parameters, and their relevance for macromolecular crystallography

Using all available metal-containing organic compound structures in the Cambridge Structural Database, we developed a novel data-driven method to derive bond valence R0 parameters. While confirming almost all reference literature values, we observe two distinct populations of Fe(II)-N and Fe(III)-N bonds which we interpret as low and high spin states of the coordinating iron. Based on the R0 parameters derived herein, we suggest guidelines for the modeling of iron-ligand distances in macromolecular structures.
