Cover illustration: Hydrogen-bond formation in the crystal structure of dichlorobis(DL-proline-[kappa]O)zinc(II). The proline residues in the chain on the left-hand side have the R configuration, while those on the right-hand side have the S configuration. See Lutz & Bakker [Acta Cryst. (2003), C59, m18-m20].

In the title compound, the NiII cations have a pseudo-face-centered cubic cell, with cell parameter a \simeq 10.216 Å and tetrahedral cavities occupied by P atoms. The NiII cation has an octahedral coordination sphere consisting of six water O atoms. The planes of oppositely coordinated water mol­ecules are in a cross conformation. The geometry of the hypophosphite anion is close to point symmetry mm2. The hypophosphite anions are hydrogen bonded to the coordinated water molecules.

Single crystals of lithium niobium di­sulfide, prepared by separated reactant metathesis, yielded a refined Li content of y = 0.63 (6). The Li content has been further confirmed analytically both by flame photometry and by preliminary neutron powder diffraction data.

The structure of UO2(NO3)2(H2O)3 consists of two distinct centrosymmetric isolated hexagonal uranyl bipyramids, which share edges with two nitrate groups. Water is structurally located in the interstices between these isolated uranyl dinitrate clusters and at the equatorial edges of the [UO2(NO3)2] groups.

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.
