Structural changes in three manno­pyran­oses with varying degrees of acetyl­ation

The structural changes in three manno­pyran­ose compounds with varying degrees of acetyl­ation are compared. In general, O-acetyl­ation exerts little effect on the exo- and endocyclic C—C and endocyclic C—O bond lengths, but the exocyclic C—O bonds involved in O-acetyl­ation are lengthened by ∼0.02 Å.

Differences and similarities among hypoxanthinium nitrate hydrate structures

The structures of three hypoxanthinium nitrate hydrates are discusssed. The data were collected at five different temperatures, including liquid-helium temperature.

Synthesis, crystal structure and biological properties of Cd and Zn coordination polymers based on a flexible tripodal ligand

Two isostructural CdII/ZnII coordination polymers containing a flexible tripodal ligand were synthesized and characterized. The anti­oxidant activities against DPPH and the anti­diabetic activities against α-amylase were evaluated in vitro.

Crystal structure and pseudosymmetry analysis of the triclinic prodrug cloxazolam (Z′ = 4)

There are four independent mol­ecules in the P\overline{1} asymmetric unit of cloxazolam, related by a striking pseudosymmetry. The identical mol­ecules consist of four rings linked in a rather rigid fashion. Even in the absence of strong hydrogen-bond inter­actions, the structure presents an unusual compactness (Kitaigorodskii packing index ≃ 0.71).

Coordination polymers of CdII and PbII derived from bi­pyridine–glycoluril ligand: influence of metal-ion size and counter-ions

CdII and PbII coordination polymers have been synthesized using a bi­pyridine–glycoluril (BPG) ligand. A comparative analysis of the structures with different metal ions based on the BPG ligand and the influence of the metal-ion size and counter-ions on the formation of the diverse structures has been explored.

The heteroscorpionate ligand 2,2-bis­(3,5-di­methyl­pyrazol-1-yl)-1,1-di­phenyl­ethanol and an easy preparation of its tungsten complex

A simple and straightforward synthesis of a heteroscorpionate tungsten complex has been developed. The crystal structures of the tungsten complex and the heteroscorpionate mol­ecule have been analysed.

Accepted 12 June 2019

A new three-dimensional cobalt(II) coordination polymer based on V-shaped 3,4′-oxydibenzoate: synthesis, crystal structure and magnetic properties

A new coordination polymer formulated as [Co(3,4′-obb)(4,4′-bipy)]n (3,4′-obb2− is 3,4′-oxydibenzoate and 4,4′-bipy is 4,4′-bi­pyridine) was prepared by the self-assembly of Co(NO3)2·6H2O with the rarely used 3,4′-obbH2 ligand and 4,4′-bipy under solvothermal conditions, and has been structurally characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, single-crystal X-ray crystallography and powder X-ray diffraction.

A simple graphical method to pinpoint local pseudosymmetries in Z′ > 1 cases

An intuitive method is presented for detecting pseudosymmetries in Z′ > 1 cases as a complement to well-proven strategies already available in the literature. It is based on the simple idea that the mid-points between equivalent atoms in symmetrically related mol­ecules are disposed according to simple well-known patterns, which are easily recognizable by optical inspection.
