Cover illustration: The synthesis and crystal structure of a `Japanese rice-ball'-shaped Molybdenum Blue hybridized organically with 2-picolinic acid is presented. In addition to single-crystal X-ray analysis, the title com­pound was characterized with IR spectroscopy and elemental analyses to reinforce its framework structure, thermogravimetric analysis to qu­antify the water content, and Vis–NIR spectroscopy to determine the degree of reduction of the nanocluster.

Hy­droxy­apatite is a com­plex material, which is often nanocrystalline and substituted within a biological setting. Both long-range and local structures were inter­rogated with X-ray diffraction and X-ray total scattering.

Novel double transition-metal phosphates, Na2NiCu(PO4)2 and Mn2Cu(PO4)2, with a rare combination of Ni/Cu and Mn/Cu metal atoms, synthesized hydro­thermally and studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, are discussed as potential magnetic materials.
