2.  An ortho­rhom­bic polymorph of the ultraphosphate YP5O14  
Single crystals of yttrium penta­phosphate(V), YP5O14, were obtained by solid-state reaction. The ortho­rhom­bic title compound belongs to the family of ultraphosphates and is the second polymorph of this composition. It is isotypic with its Ho and Er analogues. The structure contains two bridging Q 2-type PO4 tetra­hedra and one branching Q 3-type PO4 tetra­hedron, leading to infinite ultraphosphate ribbons running along the a axis. The coordination polyhedron around the Y3+ cation may be described as distorted bicapped trigonal-prismatic. The YO8 polyhedra are isolated from each other. They are linked by corner-sharing to the O atoms of six Q 2-type and of two Q 3-type PO4 tetra­hedra into a three-dimensional framework.

3.  NaSr(AsO4)(H2O)9: the (Sr,As) analogue of nabaphite and nastrophite 
The crystal structure of the title compound, sodium strontium orthoarsenate(V) nona­hydrate, is isotypic with NaSr(PO4)(H2O)9 and the minerals nabaphite [NaBa(PO4)(H2O)9] and nastrophite [Na(Sr,Ba)(PO4)(H2O)9]. The Na and Sr atoms are located on threefold rotation axes and are in the centres of slightly distorted Na(H2O)6 octa­hedra and Sr(H2O)9 tricapped trigonal prisms, respectively. A framework structure is established via edge-sharing of these polyhedra. Disordered AsO4 tetra­hedra (with threefold symmetry) are situated in the inter­stitial space of the framework. Although reasonable H-atom positions of the water mol­ecules were not established, close O⋯O contacts between the disordered AsO4 tetra­hedra and the water mol­ecules suggest strong O—H⋯O hydrogen bonding.

13.  Dipraseodymium(III) pyroborate molybdate(VI), Pr2(B2O5)(MoO4) 
Single crystals of triclinic Pr2(B2O5)(MoO4) were prepared from an incongruently melting flux in the system Pr2O3–MoO3–B2O3 in a platinum crucible in an atmosphere of air. In the crystal structure, distorted edge-sharing [PrO8] square anti­prisms form a three-dimensional framework. These are further linked by isolated [MoO4] tetra­hedra and isolated pyroborate groups [B2O5], the latter consisting of two independent trigonal [BO3] groups sharing one O atom. The [MoO4] tetra­hedra and the [B2O5] groups are arranged in alternating layers parallel to the ab plane.

15.  Redetermination of the low-temperature polymorph of Li2MnSiO4 from single-crystal X-ray data 
Crystals of dilithium manganese(II) silicate were grown under high-temperature hydro­thermal conditions in the system LiOH—MnO2—SiO2. The title compound crystallizes in the βII-Li3PO4 structure type. The coordination polyhedra of all cations are slightly distorted tetra­hedra (m symmetry for MnO4 and SiO4), which are linked by corner-sharing to each other. The vertices of the tetra­hedra point to the same direction perpendicular to the distorted hexa­gonal close-packed (hcp) array of O atoms within which half of the tetra­hedral voids are occupied by cations. In comparison with the previous refinement from powder X-ray data [Dominko et al. (2006 ▶). Electrochem. Commun. 8, 217–222], the present reinvestigation from single-crystal X-ray data allows a more precise determination of the distribution of the Li+ and Mn2+ cations, giving a perfectly site-ordered structure model for both Li+ and Mn2+.

16.  Rietveld refinement of Y2GeO5  
Y2GeO5 (yttrium germanium penta­oxide) was synthesized by solid-state reaction at 1443 K. The arrangement, which has monoclinic symmetry, is isostructural with Dy2GeO5 and presents two independent sites for the Y atoms. Around these atoms there are distorted six-coordinated YO6 octa­hedra and seven-coordinated YO7 penta­gonal bipyramids. The YO7 polyhedra are linked together, sharing their edges along a surface parallel to ab, forming a sheet. Each of these parallel sheets is inter­connected by means of GeO4 tetra­hedra, sharing an edge (or vertex) on one side and a vertex (or edge) on the other adjacent side. Parallel sheets of YO7 polyhedra are also inter­connected by undulating chains of YO6 octa­hedra along the c axis. These octa­hedra are joined together, sharing a common edge, to form the chain and share edges with the YO7 polyhedra of the sheets.

17.  Ba2Sb4GeS10  
The title quaternary compound, dibarium tetra­anti­mony germanium deca­sulfide, Ba2Sb4GeS10, crystallizes in a novel three-dimensional ∞ 3[Sb4GeS10]4− network structure, which is composed of triangular pyramidal SbS3 (site symmetry m..), distorted SbS5 (m..) polyhedra and regular GeS4 (-4..) tetra­hedra. The SbS3 and SbS5 units are connected with each other through corner- and edge-sharing, forming a Sb4S10 layer in the ab plane. The GeS4 tetra­hedra further bridge two neighbouring Sb4S10 layers, forming a three-dimensional ∞ 3[Sb4GeS10]4− network. The Ba2+ cation (..2) is located between two Sb4S10 layers and is coordinated by ten S atoms with Ba—S bond lengths in the range 3.2505 (9)–3.4121 (2) Å.

18.  Li0.5Al0.5Mg2(MoO4)3  
The title compound, lithium/aluminium dimagnesium tetra­kis­[orthomolybdate(VI)], was prepared by a solid-state reaction route. The crystal structure is built up from MgO6 octa­hedra and MoO4 tetra­hedra sharing corners and edges, forming two types of chains running along [100]. These chains are linked into layers parallel to (010) and finally linked by MoO4 tetra­hedra into a three-dimensional framework structure with channels parallel to [001] in which lithium and aluminium cations equally occupy the same position within a distorted trigonal–bipyramidal coordination environment. The title structure is isotypic with LiMgIn(MoO4)3, with the In site becoming an Mg site and the fully occupied Li site a statistically occupied Li/Al site in the title structure.

19.  NaAg2Mo3O9AsO4  
The title compound, sodium disilver arsenatotrimolybdate, Na0.93 (1)Ag2.07 (1)Mo3AsO13, was prepared by a solid-state reaction. In the crystal structure, isolated AsO4 tetra­hedra share corners with groups of three edge-sharing MoO6 octa­hedra. This arrangement leads to the formation of anionic 1 ∞[Mo3AsO13]n ribbons extending parallel to [100]. The three metal sites show occupational disorder by AgI and NaI cations, each with a different Ag:Na ratio. The metal cations are situated in the space between the ribbons and are surrounded by terminal O atoms of the ribbons in the form of distorted MO7 polyhedra (M = Ag, Na) for distances < 3.0 Å. The title compound shows weak ionic conductivity. Structural relationships between different compounds in the quaternary systems M–Sb–P–O, M–Nb–P–O and M–Mo–As–O (M is Ag or an alkali metal) are also discussed.

20.  Cs0.49NbPS6  
The quaternary thio­phosphate, Cs0.49NbPS6, caesium hexa­thio­niobiophosphate(V), has been synthesized by the reactive halide flux method. The title compound is isotypic with Rb0.46TaPS6 and is made up of a bicapped trigonal–biprismatic [Nb2S12] unit and a tetra­hedral [PS4] group. The [Nb2S12] units linked by the [PS4] tetra­hedra form infinite chains, yielding a three-dimensional network with rather large van der Waals gaps along the c axis in which the disordered Cs+ ions reside. The electrons released by the Cs atoms are transferred to the pairwise niobium metal site and there are substantial inter­metallic Nb—Nb bonding inter­actions. This leads to a significant decrease of the inter­metallic distance in the title compound compared to that in TaPS6. The classical charge balance of the title compound may be represented as [Cs+]0.49[Nb4.51+][P5+][S2−]4[S2 2−].

21.  The lanthanum(III) molybdate(VI) La4Mo7O27  
Crystals of the ortho­rhom­bic phase La4Mo7O27 (lanthanum molybdenum oxide) were obtained from a non-stoichiometric melt in the pseudo-ternary system La2O3–MoO3–B2O3. In the crystal structure, distorted square-anti­prismatic [LaO8] and monocapped square-anti­prismatic [LaO9] polyhedra are connected via common edges and faces into chains along [010]. These chains are arranged in layers that alternate with layers of [MoO4] and [MoO5] polyhedra parallel to (001). In the molybdate layers, a distorted [MoO5] trigonal bipyramid is axially connected to two [MoO4] tetra­hedra, forming a [Mo3O11] unit.

22.  Nb1.30Cr0.70S5: a layered ternary mixed-metal sulfide 
The new layered ternary sulfide, Nb1.30Cr0.70S5, niobium chromium penta­sulfide, is isostructural with the solid solution Nb1+xV1−xS5 and belongs to the FeNb3Se10 structure type. Each layer is composed of two unique chains of face-sharing [NbS8] bicapped trigonal prisms (m symmetry) and edge-sharing [MS6] (M= Nb, Cr) octa­hedra (m symmetry). One of the two metal sites is occupied by statistically disordered Nb and Cr atoms, with 0.3 and 0.7 occupancy, respectively. The chains are connected along the c axis, forming two-dimensional layers, which then stack on top of each other to complete the three dimensional structure. As a result, an undulating van der Waals gap is found between the layers.

The chains of [NdO10], chains of [BO3] and rows of [MoO4] groups are arranged in layers parallel to the bc plane.
