The structure of Bi4Ge3O12 (I\overline{4}3d, Z = 4) was investigated at 7.30 GPa, close to the onset of amorphization, using single-crystal X-ray diffraction in a diamond anvil cell at room temperature. No pressure-induced phase transition was observed up to this pressure.

The title compound, europium(II) iodide, is a new low-temperature phase crystallizing in the space group Pnma. Density-functional calculations on the various EuI2 phases and temperature-dependent X-ray analysis corroborate each other. All phases are built up by EuI7 polyhedra, but they differ in their packings.

The structures of AIn2P2 (A = Ca, Sr and Ba) are reported and compared. CaIn2P2 and SrIn2P2 are isostructural with a known compound, EuIn2P2, and BaIn2P2 is a new structure type.

Rietveld refinement of the novel vanadium aliovalent substituted zirconium tungstate ZrW1.8V0.2O7.9, using combined X-ray and neutron diffraction data, shows that its average structure is similar to that of β-ZrW2O8, with substitution occurring only at one of the W sites.

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.
