Cover illustration: A displacement ellipsoid plot, showing the atomic numbering scheme of sodium rubidium sodium (+)-tartrate tetra­hydrate. Ellipsoids are drawn at the 50% probability level and H atoms are drawn as spheres with arbitrary radii. See Lutz & Schreurs [Acta Cryst. (2008), C64, m296-m299].

Li12Cu16+xAl26−x (x = 3.2) is a new inter­metallic structure type that is related to the CaCu5, LiCuAl2 and Li8Cu12+xAl6−x structures because of the presence of hexa­gonal channels and pseudo-Frank–Kasper polyhedra packing.

UCu0.60(4)Sb2 crystallizes in the tetra­gonal space group P4/nmm. From this and previous studies of UCuxSb2, it is found that the a axis is invariant to x but that a linear relation holds between x and the length of the c axis for x between 0 and 1.

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.
