Poly[potassium [diaqua­penta-μ2-dicyan­amido-dicadmium(II)] dihydrate] contains two-dimensional anionic sheets of {[Cd2{N(CN)2}(H2O)2]}n with a modified (6,3)-net (layer group cm2m, No. 35). Two sets of equivalent sheets inter­penetrate orthogonally to form a tetragonal enmeshed grid.

The syntheses and crystal structures of a new series of isomorphous oxyfluoro­tellurates(IV) of trivalent metals Fe, Ga and Cr are described. Contrary to other oxyfluoro­tellurates, these phases are air stable, which is explained by the absence of Te—F bonds in a structure derived from the α-PbO2 type.

Li8Cu12+xAl6−x (x = 1.16) is a new structure type related to the Laves phases MgZn2, MgCu1.07Al0.93 and Mg(Cu1−xAlx)2. The atoms in this inter­metallic structure are found in icosa­hedral (Cu atoms), slightly distorted icosa­hedral and bicapped hexa­gonal anti­prismatic (Al/Cu statistical mixture), and Frank–Kasper and distorted Frank–Kasper polyhedral (Li atoms) environments.

Cs[ReCl4O2] consists of cis-tetra­chlorido­dioxido­rhenate(VII) anions and caesium cations. The distorted octa­hedral anion has nearly C2v symmetry, with a cis arrangement of the oxide ligands.

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.
