Highlighted illustration

Cover illustration: A view of the molecule of dichloro(isopropylamido)bis(iso­propylamine)(isopropylimido)­tantalum(V), with ellipsoids drawn at the 30% probability level. Methyl-H atoms have been omitted for clarity and only one of the two possible orientations of the disordered iso­propyl groups is shown. See Burland, Meyer & Geib [Acta Cryst. (2003), C59, m46-m48].

Two members of the solid-solution series Ba1−xAl2−2xSi2+2xO8, with x = 0.20 or 0.06, have been synthesized and are shown to have the celsian structure, but with Ba deficiency.

The crystal structure of LaTiO3.41 consists of (110) perovskite-type slabs with a width of five TiO6 octahedra, which are separated by additional oxy­gen layers. A superstructure is observed in the [100] direction.

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.
