1.  Crystal structure of an unknown solvate of bis­(tetra-n-butyl­ammonium) [N,N′-(4-tri­fluoro­methyl-1,2-phenyl­ene)bis­(oxamato)-κ4 O,N,N′,O′]nickelate(II) 
In the title compound, the Ni2+ cation is coordinated by two deprotonated amido N atoms and two carboxyl­ate O atoms, setting up a square-planar coordination environment. The cations and the anion are linked by weak intra- and inter­molecular C—H⋯O and C—H⋯F hydrogen bonds.
In the title compound, [N(C4H9)4]2[Ni(C11H3F3N2O6)] or [N(n-Bu)4]2[Ni(topbo)] [n-Bu = n-butyl and topbo = 4-tri­fluoro­methyl-1,2-phenyl­enebis(oxamate)], the Ni2+ cation is coordinated by two deprotonated amido N atoms and two carboxyl­ate O atoms, setting up a slightly distorted square-planar coordination environment. The [Ni(topbo]2− anion lies on a twofold rotation axis. Due to an incompatibility with the point-group symmetry of the complete mol­ecule, orientational disorder of the CF3 group is observed. The tetra­hedral ammonium cations and the anion are linked by weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O and C—H⋯F hydrogen-bonding inter­actions into a three-dimensional network. A region of electron density was treated with the SQUEEZE procedure in PLATON [Spek (2015). Acta Cryst. C71, 9–18] following unsuccessful attempts to model it as plausible solvent mol­ecule(s). The given chemical formula and other crystal data do not take into account the unknown solvent mol­ecule.

2.  Crystal structure of catena-poly[[aqua­bis­(4-formyl­benzoato)-κ2 O 1,O 1′;κO 1-zinc]-μ-pyrazine-κ2 N:N′] 
In the compound, [Zn(C8H5O3)2(C4H4N2)(H2O)]n, the pyrazine ligands bridge the ZnII cations, forming polymeric chains running parallel to the b-axis direction. Water–carboxyl­ate O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link adjacent chains into layers parallel to the bc plane. The layers are linked via weak pyrazine–formyl C—H⋯O and form­yl–carboxyl­ate C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
The asymmetric unit of the title polymeric compound, [Zn(C8H5O3)2(C4H4N2)(H2O)]n, contains two mol­ecular units. Each unit comprises two 4-formyl­benzoate (FB) anions, one pyrazine mol­ecule and one coordinating water mol­ecule; the FB anions act either as bidentate or as monodentate ligands. The O atoms of the bidentately coordinating FB anions are disordered over two positions, and they were refined with fixed occupancy ratios of 0.75:0.25 and 0.70:0.30, respectively. In the ordered monodentately coordinating FB anions, the carboxyl­ate groups are twisted away from the attached benzene rings (B and E) by 12.1 (2) and 9.2 (2)°, respectively. In the disordered FB anions, the corresponding angles are 14.1 (1) and 4.0 (2)° for benzene rings A and D, respectively. Benzene rings A and B are oriented at a dihedral angle of 45.7 (1)°, D and E at 23.2 (1)°. Pyrazine ring C makes dihedral angles of 85.6 (1) and 72.7 (1)°, respectively, with benzene rings A and B, and pyrazine ring F makes dihedral angles of 87.0 (1) and 81.3 (1)° with benzene rings D and E, respectively. The pyrazine ligands bridge the ZnII cations, forming polymeric chains running parallel to the b-axis direction. Medium-strength intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the water mol­ecules to the carboxyl­ate O atoms. In the crystal, water–carboxyl­ate O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link adjacent chains into layers parallel to the bc plane. The layers are linked via weak pyrazine–formyl C—H⋯O and form­yl–carboxyl­ate C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. π–π contacts between the benzene rings, with centroid-to-centroid distances of 3.7765 (16), 3.7905 (15) and 3.8231 (16) Å, may further stabilize the structure. There are also weak C—H⋯π inter­actions present.

3.  Acridin-10-ium 6-carb­oxy­pyridine-2-carboxyl­ate 
The title compound, C13H10N+·C7H4NO4 −, consists of a protonated acridinium cation and a 6-carb­oxy­pyridine-2-carboxyl­ate monoanion. The carboxyl­ate group of the anion appears to be delocalized on the basis of the nearly equivalent C—O bond lengths. In the crystal, the anions are connected by strong O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming chains along the b axis. The acridinium cations are linked to the anionic chains by strong N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds between the carboxyl­ate group of the anion and the N—H group of the cation. Along the b axis, successive chains stack in opposite directions. Weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds further stabilize the crystal structure.

4.  1,4-Dihydro­benzo[g]quinoxaline-2,3-dione 
The title compound, C12H8N2O2, was prepared by the reaction of the diethyl ester of naphthalene­bis­(oxamate) with tert-BuNH2. The mol­ecule is nearly planar, with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.017 Å from the plane through all 16 non-H atoms. In the crystal, a three-dimensional network is formed, composed of layers of mol­ecules along the b- and c-axis directions, due to the formation of inter­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, as well as of chains along the a-axis direction due to parallel displaced sandwich-type π–π inter­actions with average distances between the inter­acting mol­ecules in the range 3.35–3.40 Å.

5.  Crystal structure of tri­aqua­(4-cyano­benzoato-κ2 O,O′)(nicotinamide-κN 1)zinc 4-cyano­benzoate 
In the title salt, [Zn(C8H4NO2)(C6H6N2O)(H2O)3](C8H4NO2), inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link two of the coordinating water mol­ecules to two free 4-cyano­benzoate anions. N—H⋯O, O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecular components, enclosing (12), (8) and (9) ring motifs and forming layers parallel to (001).
The asymmetric unit of the title salt, [Zn(C8H4NO2)(C6H6N2O)(H2O)3](C8H4NO2), contains one complex cation and one 4-cyano­benzoate (CNB) counter-anion. The ZnII atom in the cation is coordinated by one 4-cyano­benzoate ligand, one nicotinamide (NA) ligand and three water mol­ecules, the CNB anion thereby coordinating in a bidentate O,O′-mode through the carboxyl­ate group. The latter, together with one water O atom and the N atom of the NA ligand, form a distorted square-planar arrangement, while the considerably distorted octa­hedral coordination sphere of the ZnII atom is completed by the two O atoms of additional water mol­ecules in the axial positions. The dihedral angles between the planar carboxyl­ate groups and the adjacent benzene rings in the two anions are 10.25 (10) and 5.89 (14)°. Inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link two of the coordinating water mol­ecules to two free CNB anions. In the crystal, further hydrogen-bonding inter­actions are present, namely N—H⋯O, O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds that link the mol­ecular components, enclosing R 2 2(12), R 3 3(8) and R 3 3(9) ring motifs and forming layers parallel to (001). π–π contacts between benzene rings [centroid-to-centroid distances = 3.791 (1) and 3.882 (1) Å] may further stabilize the crystal structure.

6.  Bis(dimethyl­ammonium) 3,3′-dicarb­oxy-5,5′-(5,7,12,14-tetra­oxo-6,13-diaza­tetra­cyclo­[6.6.2.04,16.011,15]hexa­deca-1,3,8,10,15-penta­ene-6,13-di­yl)dibenzoate dihydrate 
The title compound, 2C2H8N+·C30H12N2O12 2−·2H2O, comprises dimethyl­ammonium cations, 3,3′-dicarb­oxy-5,5′-(5,7,12,14-tetra­oxo-6,13-diaza­tetra­cyclo­[6.6.2.04,16.011,15]hexa­deca-1,3,8,10,15-penta­ene-6,13-di­yl)dibenzoate dianions and water mol­ecules. The dianion is situated on a crystallographic inversion centre. Two very strong symmetry-restricted O⋯H⋯O hydrogen bonds are present which are situated about the crystallographic inversion centres. In one of these hydrogen bonds, the H atom is situated at its centre, while in the other one the H atom is disordered about its centre. Both H atoms are involved in the chain-like C 2 2(16) motif, and not in a more common motif R 2 2(8) that is composed of a pair of hydrogen carboxyl­ates with the H atoms situated about the centre between the pair of O atoms. In the crystal, inter­action of these hydrogen bonds results in formation of anionic layers of dianions parallel to (-111). The water mol­ecules donate their H atoms to one of two of the carboxyl­ate O atoms, forming strong hydrogen bonds. The dimethyl­ammonium donates a bifurcated hydrogen bond to an oxo group of the dianion, forming weak hydrogen bonds. All the hydrogen bonds form a three-dimensional hydrogen-bonded network.

7.  catena-Poly[[aqua­lithium(I)]-μ-3-carb­oxy-5,6-di­methyl­pyrazine-2-carboxyl­ato-κ4 O 2,N 1:O 3,N 4] 
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Li(C8H6N2O4)(H2O)]n, comprises three Li cations, two of which are located on a twofold rotation axis, two carboxylate anions and three water mol­ecules, of which two are situated on the twofold rotation axis being aqua ligands. Both carboxylate anions are in μ2-bridging mode. All Li ions show a trigonal–bipyramidal coordination mode; the two located in special positions are bridged through N,O-bonding sites generating a polymeric ribbon along the c-axis direction. The Li cation in a general position creates an independent polymeric ribbon through N,O-bonding sites of the two symmetry-related ligands; the trigonal–bipyramidal coordination is completed by an aqua ligand. In both carboxylate anions, a carboxyl­ate and a carb­oxy­lic acid group form an intra­molecular hydrogen bond. The polymeric ribbons running along [001] are inter­connected by hydrogen bonds in which the water mol­ecules act as donors and carboxyl­ate O atoms act as acceptors, giving rise to a three-dimensional architecture.

8.  Short strong hydrogen bonds in proteins: a case study of rhamnogalacturonan acetylesterase 
The short hydrogen bonds in rhamnogalacturonan acetylesterase have been investigated by structure determination of an active-site mutant, 1H NMR spectra and computational methods. Comparisons are made to database statistics. A very short carboxylic acid carboxylate hydrogen bond, buried in the protein, could explain the low-field (18 p.p.m.) 1H NMR signal.
An extremely low-field signal (at approximately 18 p.p.m.) in the 1H NMR spectrum of rhamnogalacturonan acetylesterase (RGAE) shows the presence of a short strong hydrogen bond in the structure. This signal was also present in the mutant RGAE D192N, in which Asp192, which is part of the catalytic triad, has been replaced with Asn. A careful analysis of wild-type RGAE and RGAE D192N was conducted with the purpose of identifying possible candidates for the short hydrogen bond with the 18 p.p.m. deshielded proton. Theor­etical calculations of chemical shift values were used in the interpretation of the experimental 1H NMR spectra. The crystal structure of RGAE D192N was determined to 1.33 Å resolution and refined to an R value of 11.6% for all data. The structure is virtually identical to the high-resolution (1.12 Å) structure of the wild-type enzyme except for the interactions involving the mutation and a disordered loop. Searches of the Cambridge Structural Database were conducted to obtain information on the donor–acceptor distances of different types of hydrogen bonds. The short hydrogen-bond inter­actions found in RGAE have equivalents in small-molecule structures. An examination of the short hydrogen bonds in RGAE, the calculated pK a values and solvent-accessibilities identified a buried carboxylic acid carboxylate hydrogen bond between Asp75 and Asp87 as the likely origin of the 18 p.p.m. signal. Similar hydrogen-bond interactions between two Asp or Glu carboxy groups were found in 16% of a homology-reduced set of high-quality structures extracted from the PDB. The shortest hydrogen bonds in RGAE are all located close to the active site and short interactions between Ser and Thr side-chain OH groups and backbone carbonyl O atoms seem to play an important role in the stability of the protein structure. These results illustrate the significance of short strong hydrogen bonds in proteins.

9.  catena-Poly[[diaqua­rubidium(I)](μ2-3-carboxy­pyrazine-2-carboxyl­ato)(μ2-pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylic acid)] 
The structural unit of the title compound, [Rb(C6H3N2O4)(C6H4N2O4)(H2O)2]n, consists of one rubidium cation, one hydrogen pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxyl­ate anion, one pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylic acid mol­ecule and two water mol­ecules. This formulation is repeated twice in the asymmetric unit as the rubidium cation lies on an inversion centre. Each anion or acid mol­ecule is linked to two rubidium cations, while the rubidium cation has close contacts to four symmetry-equivalent organic ligands, with two different coordination modes towards this cation. In addition, each rubidium cation is coordinated by two water O atoms, raising the coordination number to eight. One of the carboxyl groups of the acid holds its H atom, which forms a hydrogen bond to a coordinated water mol­ecule. The other carboxyl group is deprotonated in half of the ligands and protonated in the other half, taking part in a strong O—H⋯O hydrogen bond disordered over an inversion centre. The stabil­ization of the crystal structure is further assisted by O—H⋯O and O—H⋯N hydrogen-bonding inter­actions involving the water mol­ecules and carboxyl­ate O atoms.

10.  Crystal structure of catena-poly[[di­aqua­bis­(4-formyl­benzoato-κO 1)cobalt(II)]-μ-pyrazine-κ2 N:N′] 
The CoII atom in this one-dimensional coordination polymer, with aqua, 4-formyl­benzoate and bridging pyrazine ligands, is located on a twofold rotation axis and has a slightly distorted octa­hedral coordination sphere. Strong intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the water mol­ecules to the carboxyl­ate O atoms.
In the title polymeric compound, [Co(C8H5O3)2(C4H4N2)(H2O)2]n, the CoII atom is located on a twofold rotation axis and has a slightly distorted octa­hedral coordination sphere. In the equatorial plane, it is coordinated by two carboxyl­ate O atoms of two symmetry-related monodentate formyl­benzoate anions and by two N atoms of two bridging pyrazine ligands. The latter are bis­ected by the twofold rotation axis. The axial positions are occupied by two O atoms of the coordinating water mol­ecules. In the formyl­benzoate anion, the carboxyl­ate group is twisted away from the attached benzene ring by 7.50 (8)°, while the benzene and pyrazine rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 64.90 (4)°. The pyrazine ligands bridge the CoII cations, forming linear chains running along the b-axis direction. Strong intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the water mol­ecules to the carboxyl­ate O atoms. In the crystal, weak O—Hwater⋯Owater hydrogen bonds link adjacent chains into layers parallel to the bc plane. The layers are linked via C—Hpyrazine⋯Oform­yl hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network. There are also weak C—H⋯π inter­actions present.

11.  (R)-Doxylaminium (R,R)-tartrate 
In the title compound (systematic name: (R)-dimeth­yl{2-[1-phenyl-1-(pyridin-2-yl)eth­oxy]eth­yl}aza­nium (R,R)-3-carb­oxy-2,3-dihy­droxy­propano­ate), C17H23N2O+·C4H5O6 −, the doxylaminium cation is protonated at the N atom. The tartrate monoanions are linked by short, almost linear O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into chains extended along [100]. These chains are inter­linked by anion–pyridine O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into a two-dimensional grid structure. WeakC—H⋯O inter­actions also play a role in the crystal packing. An intra­molecular hy­droxy–carboxyl­ate O—H⋯O hydrogen bond influences the conformation of the anion: the hydrogen-bonded fragment is almost planar, the maximum deviation from the mean plane being 0.059 (14) Å. In the cation, the aromatic rings are almost perpendicular [dihedral angle = 84.94 (8)°] and the conformation of the O—C—C—N chain is gauche(−), the dihedral angle is −76.6 (2)°. The absolute configuration was assigned on the basis of known chirality of the parent compound.

12.  Conformational heterogeneity within the Michaelis complex of lactate dehydrogenase† 
The journal of physical chemistry. B  2011;115(23):7670-7678.
A series of isotope edited IR measurements, both static as well as temperature jump relaxation spectroscopy, are performed on lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) to determine the ensemble of structures available to its Michaelis complex. There clearly has been a substantial reduction in the number of states available to the pyruvate substrate (as modeled by the substrate mimic, oxamate) and NADH when bound to protein compared to dissolved in solution, as determined by the bandwidths and positions of the critical C2=O band of bound substrate mimic and the C4-H stretch of NADH reduced nicotinamide group. Moreover, it is found that a strong ionic bond (characterized by a signature IR band discovered in this study) is formed between the carboxyl group of bound pyruvate with (presumably) Arg171, forming a strong ‘anchor’ within the protein matrix. However, conformational heterogeneity within the Michaelis complex is found that has an impact on both catalytic efficiency and thermodynamics of the enzyme.

13.  A series of N-(2-phenyl­ethyl)nitro­aniline derivatives as precursors for slow and sustained nitric oxide release agents 
A series of N-(2-phenyl­ethyl)nitro­aniline derivatives is presented, demonstrating that modest changes in the functional groups cause significant differences in mol­ecular conformation, inter­molecular inter­actions and packing.
2,4-Di­nitro-N-(2-phenyl­ethyl)aniline, C14H13N3O4, (I), crystallizes with one independent mol­ecule in the asymmetric unit. The adjacent amine and nitro groups form an intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond. The anti conformation about the ethyl C—C bond leads to the phenyl and aniline rings being essentially parallel. Mol­ecules are linked into dimers by inter­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, such that each amine H atom participates in a three-centre inter­action with two nitro O atoms. Though the dimers pack so that the arene rings of adjacent mol­ecules are parallel, the rings are staggered and π–π inter­actions do not appear to be favoured. 4,6-Di­nitro-N,N′-bis­(2-phenyl­ethyl)benzene-1,3-di­amine, C22H22N4O4, (II), differs from (I) in the presence of a second 2-phenyl­ethyl­amine group on the substituted ring. Compound (II) also crystallizes with one unique mol­ecule in the asymmetric unit. Both amine groups are involved in intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds with adjacent nitro groups. Although one ethyl group adopts an anti conformation as in (I), the other is gauche, with the result that the pendant phenyl rings are not parallel. The amine group that is part of the gauche conformation participates in a three-centre N—H⋯O hydrogen bond with the nitro group of a neighbouring mol­ecule, leading to dimers as in (I). The other amine H atom does not form any inter­molecular hydrogen bonds. The packing leads to separations of ca 3.4 Å of the parallel anti phenyl and amino­benzene rings. 2-Cyano-4-nitro-N-(2-phenyl­ethyl)aniline, C15H13N3O2, (III), differs from (I) only in having a cyano group in place of the 2-nitro group. The absence of the adjacent nitro group eliminates the intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond. Mol­ecules of (III) adopt the same anti conformation about the ethyl group as in (I), but crystallize in the higher-symmetry monoclinic space group P21/n. The mol­ecules are linked into dimers via N—H⋯N amine–cyano hydrogen bonds, while the nitro groups are not involved in any N—H⋯O inter­actions. Owing to the different symmetry, the mol­ecules pack in a herringbone pattern with fewer face-to-face inter­actions between the rings. The closest such inter­actions are about 3.5 Å between rings that are largely slipped past one another. 4-Methyl­sulfonyl-2-nitro-N-(2-phenyl­ethyl)aniline, C15H16N2O4S, (IV), differs from (I) in having a methyl­sulfonyl group in place of the 4-nitro group. The intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond is present as in (I). However, unlike (I), the conformation about the ethyl group is gauche, so the two arene rings are nearly per­pen­dicular rather than parallel. The packing is significantly different from the other three structures in that there are no inter­molecular hydrogen bonds involving the N—H groups. The mol­ecules are arranged in tetra­gonal columns running along the c axis, with the aniline rings mostly parallel and separated by ca 3.7 Å. Taken together, these structures demonstrate that modest changes in functional groups cause significant differences in mol­ecular conformation, inter­molecular inter­actions and packing.

14.  Crystal structure of anhydrous poly[bis­(μ2-sarcosinato-κ3 O,N:O′)copper(II)] 
The copper(II) ion of the anhydrous form of bis­(sarcosinato)copper(II) exhibits a [4 + 2] coordination sphere with four shorter equatorial bonds to the N and carboxyl­ate O atoms of two sarcosinate anions, and two longer axial bonds to O atoms of neighboring complexes, leading to a sheet structure parallel to (001).
The title compound, [Cu(C3H6NO2)2]n, is a bis-complex of the anion of sarcosine (N-methyl­glycine). The asymmetric unit consists of a copper(II) ion, located on a center of inversion, and one mol­ecule of the uninegative sarcosinate anion. The copper(II) ion exhibits a typical Jahn–Teller distorted [4 + 2] coordination geometry. The four shorter equatorial bonds are to the nitro­gen and carboxyl­ate O atoms of two sarcosinate anions, and the longer axial bonds are to carboxyl­ate O atoms of neighboring complexes. The overall structure is made up from two chains formed by these longer axial Cu—O bonds, one extending parallel to [011] and the other parallel to [0-11]. Each one-dimensional array is connected by the equatorial bridging moieties to the chains on either side, creating an extended two-dimensional framework parallel to (100). There is a single inter­molecular hydrogen-bonding inter­action within the sheets between the amino NH group and an O atom of an adjacent mol­ecule.

15.  2-Amino-5-methyl­pyridinium 2-carb­oxy­benzoate 
In the title salt, C6H9N2 +·C8H5O4 −, the hydrogen phthalate anion is essentially planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.011 (2) Å. In the crystal structure, the protonated N atom of the pyridine ring and the 2-amino group of the cation are hydrogen bonded to the carboxyl­ate O atoms of the anion via a pair of N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming an R 2 2(8) ring motif. In the hydrogen phthalate anion, there is a very strong, almost symmetric, intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bond, generating an S(7) motif [O⋯O = 2.382 (3) Å]. Furthermore, these two molecular motif rings are connected by a bifurcated N—H⋯(O,O) hydrogen-bonded motif R 1 2(4), forming a supra­molecular ribbon along the b axis. The crystal structure is further stabilized by π–π inter­actions between the cations and anions [centroid–centroid distance = 3.6999 (10) Å].

16.  Adenin-1-ium hydrogen isophthalate di­methyl­formamide monosolvate 
In the title proton-transfer organic salt, C5H6.3N5 +·C8H4.7O4 −·C3H7NO, the adeninium moiety is protonated at the N atom in the 1-position of the 6-amino-7H-purin-1-ium (adeninium) cation. In the solid state, the second acidic proton of isophthalic acid is partially transferred to the imidazole N atom of the adeninium cation [refined O—H versus N—H ratio = 0.70 (11):0.30 (11)]. Through the partially transferred proton, the adeninium cation is strongly hydrogen bonded (N—H⋯O/O—H⋯N) to the isophthalate anion. This strong inter­action is assisted by another N—H⋯O hydrogen bond originating from the adeninium NH2 group towards the isophthalate keto O atom, with an R 2 2(8) graph-set motif. This arrangement is linked via N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds to the O atoms of the carboxyl­ate group of an isophthalate anion. Together, these hydrogen bonds lead to the formation criss-cross zigzag isophthalate⋯adeninium chains lying parallel to (501) and (50-1). The adeninium cations and the isophthalate anions are arranged in infinite π stacks that extend along the c-axis direction [inter­planar distance = 3.305 (3) Å]. Mol­ecules are inclined with respect to this direction and within the stacks they are offset by ca. half a mol­ecule each. Combination of the N—H⋯O and O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds with the π–π inter­actions forms infinitely stacked isophthalate⋯adeninium chains, thus leading to a two-dimensional supra­molecular structure with parallel inter­digitating layers formed by the π stacked isophthalate⋯adeninium chains. The DMF mol­ecules of crystallization are bonded to the adeninium cations through strong N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and project into the lattice space in between the anions and cations. There are also C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds present which, combined with the other inter­actions, form a three-dimensional network. The crystal under investigation was found to be split and was handled as if non-merohedrally twinned.

17.  Diaqua­bis(2,2′-biimidazole)cobalt(II) 4,4′-dicarboxy­biphenyl-3,3′-di­car­boxylate 
In the title compound, [Co(C6H6N4)2(H2O)2](C16H8O8), the CoII cation and the organic anion occupy different crystallographic inversion centres and, as a consequence, the asymmetric unit comprises two half-mol­ecules. The benzene groups are coplanar. The four coordinating N atoms of the two bidentate biimidazole ligands define the equatorial plane of a slightly distorted octa­hedral CoO2N4 geometry, and the water O atoms lie in the axial coordination sites. Translational (a,) and inversion-related symmetry operations link the Co complex mol­ecules and the negatively charged carboxyl­ate anions via inter­molecular N—H⋯O and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into sheets parallel to (01). The coordinated water mol­ecules connect the sheets through O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional framework. In addition, two intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds are observed between the carboxyl and carboxyl­ate groups.

18.  Tetra­ethyl­ammonium l-malate 1.36-hydrate 
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C8H20N+·C4H5O5 −·1.36H2O, contains two independent ion pairs, with similar conformations, and three water mol­ecules of crystallization, one water mol­ecule haing a site-occupancy factor of 0.721 (5). Intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, involving the hydr­oxy groups and an O atom of each carboxyl­ate anion, generate five-membered rings involving S(5) ring motifs. In the crystal structure, mol­ecules are linked together by water mol­ecules through four-membered O—H⋯O—H⋯O—H inter­actions to form one-dimensional infinite chains along the a axis. Since the mol­ecules are also linked into one-dimensional infinite chains along the b axis, mol­ecular sheets parallel to the (001) plane are created. Overall, the crystal structure is stabilized by two intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, nine inter­molecular O—H⋯O and ten C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.

19.  catena-Poly[[lithium-μ2-(di­hydrogen pyrazine-2,3,5,6-tetra­carboxyl­ato)-κ6 O 2,N 1,O 6;O 3,N 4,O 5-lithium-di-μ-aqua-κ4 O:O] 2.5-hydrate] 
The title coordination polymer, {[Li2(C8H2N2O8)(H2O)2]·2.5H2O}n, is built up from mol­ecular ribbons propagating in the c-axis direction of the ortho­rhom­bic unit cell; the ligand bridges two Li+ ions using both its N,O,O′-bonding sites and adjacent Li+ ions are bridged by pairs of water mol­ecules. The coordination geometry of the metal ion is distorted trigonal bipyramidal, with the ligand O atoms in the axial sites. Two of the carboxyl­ate groups of the ligand remain protonated and form short symmetric O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. In the crystal, the ribbons inter­act via a network of O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds in which coordinating water mol­ecules act as donors and carboxyl­ate O atoms within adjacent ribbons act as acceptors, giving rise to a three-dimensional framework. O—H⋯N inter­actions are also observed. The asymmetric unit contains quarter of the ligand and the complete ligand has 2/m symmetry; the Li+ ion lies on a special position with m.. site symmetry. Both bridging water mol­ecules have m2m site symmetry and both lattice water mol­ecules have m.. site symmetry; one of the latter was modelled with a site occupancy of 0.25.

20.  catena-Poly[[di­aqua­bis­(4-formyl­benzoato-κO 1)copper(II)]-μ-pyrazine-κ2 N:N′] 
In the title polymeric compound, [Cu(C8H5O3)2(C4H4N2)(H2O)2]n, the CuII atom is located on a twofold rotation axis and has a slightly distorted octa­hedral coordination sphere. In the equatorial plane, it is coordinated by two carboxyl­ate O atoms of two symmetry-related monodentate formyl­benzoate anions and by two N atoms of the bridging pyrazine ligand, which is bis­ected by the twofold rotation axis. The axial positions are occupied by two O atoms of the coordinating water mol­ecules. In the formyl­benzoate anion, the carboxyl­ate group is twisted away from the attached benzene ring by 6.2 (2)°, while the benzene and pyrazine rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 68.91 (8)°. The pyrazine ligands bridge the CuII cations, forming polymeric chains running along the b-axis direction. Strong intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the water mol­ecules to the carboxyl­ate O atoms. In the crystal, O—Hwater⋯Owater hydrogen bonds link adjacent chains into layers parallel to the bc plane. The layers are linked via C—Hpyrazine⋯Oform­yl hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network. There are also weak C—H⋯π inter­actions present.

21.  Isopropyl­aminium 2-carb­oxy-4,5-di­chloro­benzoate 
In the structure of the 1:1 proton-transfer compound of isopropyl­amine with 4,5-dichloro­phthalic acid, C3H10N+·C8H3Cl2O4 −, the three cation H-atom donors associate with three separate carboxyl O-atom anion acceptors, giving conjoint cyclic R 4 4(12), R 4 4(16) hydrogen-bonding cation–anion inter­actions in a one-dimensional ribbon structure. In the anions, the carboxyl groups lie slightly out of the plane of the benzene ring [maximum deviations = 0.439 (1) for a carboxylic acid O atom and 0.433 (1) Å for a carboxyl­ate O atom]. However, the syn-related proton of the carboxylic acid group forms the common short intra­molecular O—H⋯Ocarbox­yl hydrogen bond.

22.  Crystal structure of (E)-4-{2-[4-(all­yloxy)phen­yl]diazen­yl}benzoic acid 
The title compound has an E conformation about the azo­benzene linkage and the benzene rings are almost coplanar to one another [dihedral angle = 1.36 (7)°]. In the crystal, a combination of O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C—H⋯π inter­actions leads to the formation of slabs parallel to (001).
The title compound, C16H14N2O3, has an E conformation about the azo­benzene [—N=N– = 1.2481 (16) Å] linkage. The benzene rings are almost coplanar [dihedral angle = 1.36 (7)°]. The O atoms of the carb­oxy­lic acid group are disordered over two sets of sites and were refined with an occupancy ratio of 0.5:0.5. The two disordered components of the carb­oxy­lic acid group make dihedral angles of 1.5 (14) and 3.8 (12)° with the benzene ring to which they are attached. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via pairs of O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers. The dimers are connected via C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming ribbons lying parallel to [120]. These ribbons are linked via C—H⋯π inter­actions, forming slabs parallel to (001).

23.  Tetra­kis(μ2-4-amino­benzoato)di-μ3-oxido-tetra­kis[dibutyl­tin(IV)] 
The mol­ecule of the title compound, [Sn4(C4H9)8(C7H6NO2)4O2], lies about an inversion centre and is a tetra­nuclear bis­(tetra­butyl­dicarboxyl­ato­distannoxane) complex containing a planar Sn4O2 core in which two μ3-oxide O atoms connect an Sn2O2 ring to two exocyclic Sn atoms. Each Sn atom has a highly distorted octa­hedral coordination. In the mol­ecule, the carboxyl­ate groups of two amino­benzoate ligands bridge the central and exocyclic Sn atoms, while two further amino­benzoate ligands have highly asymmetric bidentate chelation to the exocyclic Sn atoms plus long O⋯Sn inter­actions with the central Sn atoms. Each Sn atom is also coordinated by two pendant n-butyl ligands, which extend roughly perpendicular to the plane of the Sn4O10 core. Only one of the four unique hydrogen-bond donor sites is involved in a classic N—H⋯O hydrogen bond, and the resulting supra­molecular hydrogen-bonded structure is an extended two-dimensional network which lies parallel to the (100) plane and consists of a checkerboard pattern of four-connected mol­ecular cores acting as nodes. The amine groups not involved in the hydrogen-bonding inter­actions have significant N—H⋯π inter­actions with neighbouring amino­benzene rings.

24.  Poly[hexa­aqua­(μ9-cyclo­hexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexa­carboxyl­ato)trimanganese(II)] 
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Mn3(C12H6O12)(H2O)6]n, comprises one MnII ion, one third of a cyclo­hexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexa­carboxyl­ate anion and two aqua ligands. The anion is completed by application of a -3 axis. The MnII ion is six-coordinated by six O atoms from two aqua ligands and three different cyclo­hexa­carboxyl­ate anions in an octa­hedral geometry. The six carboxyl­ate groups adopt a bridging bidentate mode to ligate the MnII ions. Thus, each cyclo­hexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexa­carboxyl­ate anion adopts a μ9-connected mode, ligating nine different MnII ions and forming a three-dimensional framework. In the framework, there are strong O—H⋯O hydrogen-bonding inter­actions, which further stabilize the crystal structure.

25.  4-[Bis(4-fluoro­phen­yl)meth­yl]-1-[(2E)-3-phenyl­prop-2-en-1-yl]piperazin-1-ium 3-carb­oxy­propano­ate 
In the title salt, C26H27F2N2 +·C4H5O4 −, the piperazine N atom bearing the vinylic substituent is protonated. The piperazine ring adopts a chair conformation. In ther crystal, the succinate monoanions are connected via short O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds between the carb­oxy­lic acid and carboxyl­ate groups into undulating chains extending along [001] and the flunarizinium monocations are attached to these chains via N+—H⋯O− hydrogen bonds. C—H⋯O inter­actions connect these chains into a three-dimensional network. The shortest centroid–centroid distance of 3.7256 (10) Å was found between one of the fluorinated benzene rings and the non-fluorinated phenyl ring in the neighbouring mol­ecule related by a glide plane.
