Cover illustration: The molecular structure of diphenyldipyridinezinc(II). Displacement ellipsoids are drawn at the 50% probability level. All H atoms have been omitted. The central Zn atom displays a distorted tetrahedral coordination geometry. See Lennartson & Håkansson [Acta Cryst. (2009), C65, m205-m207].

The crystal structure of GeTe2O6, a phase already known but previously indexed in the wrong unit cell and symmetry, has been determined from single-crystal data in the P21/n space group. It consists of a three-dimensional framework of isolated GeO6 octa­hedra connected only via isolated TeO3 units.

The structure contains two unique cages built with a hydrogen-bond network, and octa­hedral environments of niobium and scandium to encapsulate the potassium cations.

Li2Zn3(P2O7)2 has two symmetry-independent sites for Zn atoms; one is fully occupied and the other is disordered as Zn2+ and Li+ in a 1:1 ratio. [ZnO5] bipyramids build up infinite zigzag chains by sharing edges with each other. Half of the Li+ cations are disordered on Zn sites and the other half occupy symmetry-independent positions, with site-occupancy factors of 0.5.

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.
