Cover illustration: The second-sphere coordination of the [Co(NH3)6]3+ cation in sodium hexa­ammine­cobalt(III) tetra­kis­(4-fluoro­benzoate) monohydrate. One of the CO2- groups forms an edge-to-face inter­action, while the other three inter­actions shown are vertex-to-face. See Sharma, Bala, Sharma & Bond [Acta Cryst. (2005), C61, m356-m358].

The crystal structure of La5Mo6O21 (penta­lanthanum hexa­molybdenum henicosa­oxide) is made up of Mo3O13 units containing triangular {MoIV}3 clusters, three distorted MoVO6 octa­hedral units and six inter­stitial LaIII atoms. The Mo3O13 unit consists of three edge-sharing MoIVO6 units involving Mo—Mo bonding. The three MoVO6 octa­hedra share their corners or edges with each other and with the Mo3O13 units.

Tl2(SeO3)3 is built up from TlO6 octa­hedra, TlO7 distorted penta­gonal bipyramids and (SeO3)2− pyramids sharing vertices and edges to form corrugated (001) layers. The Se lone pairs of electrons are accommodated in the inter­layer regions.

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.
