Cover illustration: View of bis([mu]-benzoato-O:O')bis­[3-(6-meth­oxy­salicyl­idene­amino)propanolato-N,O'',O''':O''']­di­manganese(III) showing the labelling of the non-H atoms. Displacement ellipsoids are drawn at the 50% probability level and H atoms are shown as spheres of arbitrary radii. See Zhang & Janiak [Acta Cryst. (2001), C57, 719-720].

The structure of Rb5Mo27Se31 consists of both Mo12Se14Se6 and Mo15Se17Se6 clusters, connected through inter-cluster Mo—Se bonds. Rb+ cations occupy large voids between the different clusters.

Rietveld refinement shows that above 573 K, AlPO4 tridymite has a dynamically disordered tetrahedral framework structure with an ordered cation distribution. The average structure, with strongly anisotropic displacement parameters for oxy­gen, and the split-atom model explain the diffraction pattern equally well.

The structure of the well known scintillator material Lu2SiO5 (LSO), which is used for γ detection in medical imaging and high-energy physics, has been determined from neutron diffraction data. It consists of isolated ionic SiO4 tetrahedral units and non-Si-bonded O atoms in distorted OLu4 tetrahedra. The OLu4 tetrahedra form edge-sharing infinite chains and double O2Lu6 tetrahedra along the c axis.

Chromous hydrazine sulfate at 100 K is similar to its zinc analogue, with chains of chromium(II) ions linked by sulfate anions and extensive hydrogen bonding between the H atoms of the coordinated hydrazinium ligands and O atoms of the sulfate anions which bridge the chromium(II) ions.

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.
