1.  Co-crystals of 3-de­oxy-3-fluoro-α-d-glucopyran­ose and 3-de­oxy-3-fluoro-β-d-glucopyran­ose 
3-De­oxy-3-fluoro-d-glucopyran­ose crystallizes from acetone to give a unit cell containing two crystallographically independent mol­ecules. One of these mol­ecules (at site A) is structurally homogeneous and corresponds to 3-de­oxy-3-fluoro-β-d-glucopyran­ose, C6H11FO5, (I). The second mol­ecule (at site B) is structurally heterogeneous and corresponds to a mixture of (I) and 3-de­oxy-3-fluoro-α-d-glucopyran­ose, (II); treatment of the diffraction data using partial-occupancy oxygen at the anomeric center gave a high-quality packing model with an occupancy ratio of 0.84:0.16 for (II):(I) at site B. The mixture of α- and β-anomers at site B appears to be accommodated in the lattice because hydrogen-bonding partners are present to hydrogen bond to the anomeric OH group in either an axial or equatorial orientation. Cremer–Pople analysis of (I) and (II) shows the pyranosyl ring of (II) to be slightly more distorted than that of (I) [θ(I) = 3.85 (15)° and θ(II) = 6.35 (16)°], but the general direction of distortion is similar in both structures [ϕ(I) = 67 (2)° (B C1,C4) and ϕ(II) = 26.0 (15)° (C3 TB C1); B = boat conformation and TB = twist-boat conformation]. The exocyclic hy­droxy­methyl (–CH2OH) conformation is gg (gauche–gauche) (H5 anti to O6) in both (I) and (II). Structural comparisons of (I) and (II) to related unsubstituted, de­oxy and fluorine-substituted monosaccharides show that the gluco ring can assume a wide range of distorted chair structures in the crystalline state depending on ring substitution patterns.

2.  4-De­oxy-4-fluoro-β-d-gluco­pyranose 
4-De­oxy-4-fluoro-β-d-glucopyran­ose, C6H11FO5, (I), crystallizes from water at room temperature in a slightly distorted 4 C 1 chair con­formation. The observed chair distortion differs from that observed in β-d-glucopyran­ose [Kouwijzer, van Eijck, Kooijman & Kroon (1995 ▶). Acta Cryst. B51, 209–220], (II), with the former skewed toward a B C3,O5 (boat) conformer and the latter toward an O5 TB C2 (twist–boat) conformer, based on Cremer–Pople analysis. The exocyclic hy­droxy­methyl group conformations in (I) and (II) are similar; in both cases, the O—C—C—O torsion angle is ∼−60° (gg con­former). Inter­molecular hydrogen bonding in the crystal structures of (I) and (II) is conserved in that identical patterns of donors and acceptors are observed for the exocyclic substituents and the ring O atom of each monosaccharide. Inspection of the crystal packing structures of (I) and (II) reveals an essentially identical packing configuration.

3.  Tri-tert-butyl 3-oxo-4-oxa-1,8,11-tri­aza­spiro­[5.6]dodecane-1,8,11-tri­acetate 
The title compound, C26H45N3O8, is a bicyclic mol­ecule; the seven-membered diazepane ring has a twisted-chair conformation and the six-membered morpholine ring has a boat conformation.

4.  Ammine(2,2′-bipyridine-κ2 N,N′)silver(I) nitrate: a dimer formed by π–π stacking and ligand-unsupported Ag⋯Ag inter­actions 
Reaction of AgNO3 and 2,2′-bipyridine (bipy) under ultrasonic treatment gave the title compound, [Ag(C10H8N2)(NH3)]NO3. The crystal structure consists of dimers formed by two symmetry-related AgI–bipy monomers connected through intra-dimer π–π stacking and ligand-unsupported Ag⋯Ag inter­actions. A crystallographic C2 axis passes through the mid-point of and is perpendicular to the Ag⋯Agi(−x + 1, y, −z + ) axis. In addition, each AgI cation is coordinated by one chelating bipy ligand and one ammine ligand, giving a trigonal coordination environment capped by the symmetry-equivalent Ag atom. Mol­ecules are assembled by Ag⋯Ag, π–π, hydrogen-bond (N—H⋯O and C—H⋯O) and weak Ag⋯π inter­actions into a three-dimensional framework. Comparing the products synthesized under different mechanical treatments, we found that reaction conditions have a significant influence on the resulting structures. The luminescence properties of the title compound are also discussed.

5.  p-Phenyl­enediamine and its dihydrate: two-dimensional isomorphism and mechanism of the dehydration process, and N—H⋯N and N—H⋯π inter­actions 
p-Phenyl­enediamine can be obtained as the dihydrate, C6H8N2·2H2O, (I), and in its anhydrous form, C6H8N2, (II). The asymmetric unit of (I) contains one half of the p-phenyl­ene­diamine mol­ecule lying about an inversion centre and two halves of water mol­ecules, one lying on a mirror plane and the other lying across a mirror plane. In (II), the asymmetric unit consists of one mol­ecule in a general position and two half mol­ecules located around inversion centres. In both structures, the p-phenyl­enediamine mol­ecules are arranged in layers stabilized by N—H⋯π inter­actions. The diamine layers in (I) are isostructural with half of the layers in (II). On dehydration, crystals of (I) transform to (II). Comparison of their crystal structures suggests the most plausible mechanism of the transformation process which requires, in addition to translational motion of the diamine mol­ecules, in-plane rotation of every fourth p-phenyl­enediamine mol­ecule by ca 60°. A search of the Cambridge Structural Database shows that the formation of hydrates by aromatic amines should be considered exceptional.

6.  The new ternary phases of La3(Zn0.874Mg0.126)11 and Ce3(Zn0.863Mg0.137)11  
The La3(Zn0.874Mg0.126)11 and Ce3(Zn0.863Mg0.137)11 inter­metallic compounds are isostructural and crystallize in the ortho­rhom­bic La3Al11 structure type. Compared to the structure of La3Al11, in La3(Zn0.874Mg0.126)11, a significant decrease of 11.9% in the unit-cell b axis and and an increase in the other two directions, of 3.6% along a and 5.2% along c, are observed. Such an atypical deformation is caused by the closer packing of atoms in the unit cell due to atom shifts that reflect strengthening of metallic-type bonding.
The new ternary inter­metallic title compounds, namely trilanthanum undeca­(zinc/magnesium), La3(Zn0.874Mg0.126)11, (I), and tricerium undeca­(zinc/magnesium), Ce3(Zn0.863Mg0.137)11, (II), are isostructural and crystallize in the ortho­rhom­bic La3Al11 structure type. These three phases belong to the same structural family, the representative members of which may be derived from the tetra­gonal BaAl4 structure type by a combination of inter­nal deformation and multiple substitution. Compared to the structure of La3Al11, in (I), a significant decrease of 11.9% in the unit-cell b axis and an increase in the other two directions, of 3.6% along a and 5.2% along c, are observed. Such an atypical deformation is caused by the closer packing of atoms in the unit cell due to atom shifts that reflect strengthening of metallic-type bonding. This structural change is also manifested in a significant difference in the coordination around the smaller atoms at the 8l Wyckoff position (site symmetry m). The Al atom in La3Al11 is in a tricapped trigonal prismatic environment (coordination number 9), while the Zn atoms in (I) and (II) are situated in a tetra­gonal anti­prism with two added atoms (coordination number 10).

7.  (E)-N-{[6-Chloro-4-(4-chloro­phen­yl)-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridin-5-yl]methyl­ene}benzene-1,2-diamine: a three-dimensional framework structure built from only two hydrogen bonds 
The mol­ecules of the title compound, C26H19Cl2N5, are conformationally chiral, with none of the aryl groups coplanar with the pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridine core of the mol­ecule. A single unique N—H⋯N hydrogen bond links the mol­ecules into two symmetry-related sets of C(11) chains running parallel to the [011] and [01] directions, respectively, and these two sets of chains are linked into a continuous three-dimensional framework structure by a single unique C—H⋯N hydrogen bond which forms a chain parallel to the [100] direction.

8.  Two solid phases of pyrimidin-1-ium hydrogen chloranilate monohydrate determined at 225 and 120 K 
The crystal structures of two solid phases of the title compound, C4H5N2 +·C6HCl2O4 −·H2O, have been determined at 225 and 120 K. In the high-temperature phase, stable above 198 K, the transition temperature of which has been determined by 35Cl nuclear quadrupole resonance and differential thermal analysis measurements, the three components are held together by O—H⋯O, N⋯H⋯O, C—H⋯O and C—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds, forming a centrosymmetric 2+2+2 aggregate. In the N⋯H⋯O hydrogen bond formed between the pyrimidin-1-ium cation and the water mol­ecule, the H atom is disordered over two positions, resulting in two states, viz. pyrimidin-1-ium–water and pyrimidine–oxonium. In the low-temperature phase, the title compound crystallizes in the same monoclinic space group and has a similar mol­ecular packing, but the 2+2+2 aggregate loses the centrosymmetry, resulting in a doubling of the unit cell and two crystallographically independent mol­ecules for each component in the asymmetric unit. The H atom in one N⋯H⋯O hydrogen bond between the pyrimidin-1-ium cation and the water mol­ecule is disordered, while the H atom in the other hydrogen bond is found to be ordered at the N-atom site with a long N—H distance [1.10 (3) Å].

9.  La2Pb(SiS4)2  
The title structure is occupationally disordered on the La and Pb sites. A large gap was found around the coordination polyhedra, which makes the compound a prospective material in crystal engineering.
Crystals of La2Pb(SiS4)2, dilanthanum(III) lead(II) bis­[tetra­sulfido­sili­cate(IV)], were obtained from the La–Pb–Si–S system and structurally characterized using X-ray single-crystal diffraction. The La and Pb atoms are coordinated in bicapped trigonal prisms of S atoms, with the Si atoms in tetra­hedra. An occupational disorder of the La and Pb centres was refined for one position in the structure. The bicapped trigonal prisms and tetra­hedra share edges. A gap located 2.629 (1) Å from the sulfide anions was found around the coordination polyhedra, which makes La2Pb(SiS4)2 a prospective material in crystal engineering. The Si and one S atom lie on a threefold axis.

10.  Hydrogen-bonding patterns in two aroylthio­carbamates and two aroylimidothio­carbonates 
In O-ethyl N-benzoyl­thio­carbamate, C10H11NO2S, the mol­ecules are linked into sheets by a combination of two-centre N—H⋯O and C—H⋯S hydrogen bonds and a three-centre C—H⋯(O,S) hydrogen bond. A combination of two-centre N—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds links the mol­ecules of O-ethyl N-(4-methyl­benzoyl)thio­carbamate, C11H13NO2S, into chains of rings, which are linked into sheets by an aromatic π–π stacking inter­action. In O,S-diethyl N-(4-methyl­benzoyl)imidothio­carbonate, C13H17NO2S, pairs of mol­ecules are linked into centrosymmetric dimers by pairs of symmetry-related C—H⋯π(arene) hydrogen bonds, while the mol­ecules of O,S-diethyl N-(4-chloro­benzoyl)imidothio­carbonate, C12H14ClNO2S, are linked by a single C—H⋯O hydrogen bond into simple chains, pairs of which are linked by an aromatic π–π stacking inter­action to form a ladder-type structure.

11.  Strong asymmetric hydrogen bonding in 2-(oxamoylamino)ethyl­ammonium oxamate–oxamic acid (1/1) 
The title compound, C4H10N3O2 +·C2H2NO3 −·C2H3NO3, con­tains at least 11 distinct hydrogen-bond inter­actions showing a great variety of bond strengths. The shortest and strongest hydrogen bond [O⋯O = 2.5004 (12) Å] is found between the uncharged oxamic acid molecule and the oxamate mono­anion. The grouping formed by such a strong hydrogen bond can thus be considered as a hydrogen bis­(oxamate) monoanion. It lacks crystallographic symmetry and the two oxamate groups have different conformations, showing an asymmetric hydrogen-bond inter­action. Significantly, the asymmetry allows us to draw a direct comparison of site basicity for the two inequivalent carboxyl­ate O atoms in the planar oxamate anion. The constituent mol­ecular ions of (I) form ribbons, where all amide and carboxyl­ate groups are coplanar. Graph-set analysis of the hydrogen-bonded net­works reveals the R 2 2(10) and R 2 2(9) homodromic nets as important structure-directing motifs, which appear to be a common feature of many oxamate-containing compounds.

12.  The solid solution (Fe0.81Al0.19)(H2PO4)3 with a strong hydrogen bond 
A sample of synthetic (Fe0.81Al0.19)(H2PO4)3 was prepared by hydro­thermal methods in order to determine the crystal structure. The compound is a new monoclinic variety (γ-form) and the structure is based on a two-dimensional framework of distorted corner-sharing MO6 (M = Fe, Al) polyhedra sharing corners with PO4 tetra­hedra.
Single crystals of the solid solution iron aluminium tris(dihydrogenphosphate), (Fe0.81Al0.19)(H2PO4)3, have been pre­pared under hydro­thermal conditions. The compound is a new monoclinic variety (γ-form) of iron aluminium phosphate (Fe,Al)(H2PO4)3. The structure is based on a two-dimensional framework of distorted corner-sharing MO6 (M = Fe, Al) polyhedra sharing corners with PO4 tetra­hedra. Strong hydrogen bonds between the OH groups of the H2PO4 tetra­hedra and the O atoms help to consolidate the crystal structure.

13.  Ba2Gd2(Si4O13): a silicate with finite Si4O13 chains 
Ba2Gd2(Si4O13) contains finite Si4O13 chains and Gd2O12 dimers. It is a representative of a rare class of silicates containing Si4O13 chains.
The title compound, dibarium digadolinium(III) tetra­silicate, crystallized from a molybdate-based flux. It represents a new structure type and contains finite zigzag-shaped C 2-symmetric Si4O13 chains and Gd2O12 dimers built of edge-sharing GdO7 polyhedra. The [9+1]-coordinated Ba atoms are located in voids in the atomic arrangement. All atoms are in general positions except for one O atom, which lies on a twofold axis. The structure is compared with those of the few other known tetra­silicates.

14.  A synchrotron radiation study of the one-dimensional complex of sodium with (1S)-N-carboxyl­ato-1-(9-deaza­adenin-9-yl)-1,4-dide­oxy-1,4-imino-d-ribitol, a member of the ’immucillin’ family 
The sodium salt of [immucillin-A–CO2H]− (Imm-A), namely catena-poly[[[triaqua­disodium(I)](μ-aqua)[μ-(1S)-N-car­box­yl­ato-1-(9-deaza­adenin-9-yl)-1,4-dide­oxy-1,4-imino-d-ribi­tol][triaqua­disodium(I)][μ-(1S)-N-carboxyl­ato-1-(9-deaza­aden­in-9-yl)-1,4-dide­oxy-1,4-imino-d-ribitol]] tetra­hydrate], {[Na2(C12H13N4O6)2(H2O)7]·4H2O}n, (I), forms a polymeric chain via Na+—O inter­actions involving the carboxyl­ate and keto O atoms of two independent Imm-A mol­ecules. Extensive N,O—H⋯O hydrogen bonding utilizing all water H atoms, including four waters of crystallization, provides crystal packing. The structural definition of this novel compound was made possible through the use of synchrotron radiation utilizing a minute fragment (volume ∼2.4 × 10−5 mm−3) on a beamline optimized for protein data collection. A summary of intra-ring conformations for immucillin structures indicates considerable flexibility while retaining similar intra-ring orientations.

15.  The ansa-zirconocene [bis­(η5-cyclo­penta­dien­yl)phenyl­phosphine]­dichloridozirconium(IV) 
In the title compound, [Zr(C16H13P)Cl2], the geometry at the metal atom is distorted tetra­hedral; the Cl—Zr—Cl angle is 101.490 (16)° and the cyclo­penta­dienyl (Cp) centroids subtend an angle of 122.63 (3)° at the Zr atom. The P atom lies 0.474 (3) and 0.496 (3) Å out of the planes of the Cp rings. The C—P—C angle of 91.42 (7)° reflects the pincer effect of the two Cp rings. Three C—H⋯Cl, one C—H⋯P, one C—H⋯π and one Cl⋯P inter­action link the mol­ecules to form thick layers parallel to the bc plane.

16.  Hydrogen-bonded network structures in dipyridinium, bis­(2-methyl­pyridinium), bis­(3-methyl­pyridinium) and bis­(4-methyl­pyridinium) dioxidobis(oxydiacetato)uranate(VI) 
Four complexes containing the [UO2(oda)2]2− anion (oda is oxy­diacetate) are reported, namely dipyridinium dioxidobis(oxydiacetato)uranate(VI), (C5H6N)2[U(C4H4O5)2O2], (I), bis(2-methyl­pyridinium) dioxidobis(oxydiacetato)uranate(VI), (C8H8N)2[U(C4H4O5)2O2], (II), bis­(3-methyl­pyridinium) di­oxido­bis(oxydiacetato)uranate(VI), (C8H8N)2[U(C4H4O5)2O2], (III), and bis­(4-methyl­pyridinium) dioxidobis(oxydiacetato)uranate(VI), (C8H8N)2[U(C4H4O5)2O2], (IV). The anions are achiral and are located on a mirror plane in (I) and on inversion centres in (II)–(IV). The four complexes are assembled into three-dimensional structures via N—H⋯O and C—H⋯O inter­actions. Compounds (III) and (IV) are isomorphous; the [UO2(oda)2]2− anions form a porous matrix which is nearly identical in the two structures, and the cations are located in channels formed in this matrix. Compounds (I) and (II) are very different from (III) and (IV): (I) forms a layered structure, while (II) forms ribbons.

17.  2-(Diphenyl­phosphinoylmeth­yl)pyrrole–2-(diphenyl­phosphinometh­yl)pyrrole (0.43/0.57) and tetra­chlorido­(5-diphenyl­phosphinometh­yl-2H-pyrrole-κ2 N,P)titanium(IV) 
The title phosphine oxide–phosphine, 0.43C17H16NOP·0.57C17H16NP, (I)/(II), was obtained as a 0.861 (6):1.139 (6) cocrystallized mixture. Hydrogen bonding between the two constituents leads to the formation of 2:2 solid-state assemblies. Instead of forming the expected simple N,P-chelated system via loss of the N-bound H atom, reaction of 2-(diphenyl­phosphinometh­yl)pyrrole, (II), with TiCl4 leads to the formation of the title titanium(IV) complex, [TiCl4(C17H16NP)], (IV), containing a rearranged neutral ligand in which the N-bound H atom moves to one of the pyrrole C atoms, giving a partially unsaturated ring.

18.  Di­hydrogen phosphate mediated supra­molecular frameworks in 2- and 4-chloro­anilinium dihydrogen phosphate salts 
The title compounds, 2-chloro­anilinium dihydrogen phosphate (2CADHP) and 4-chloro­anilinium di­hydrogen phosphate (4CADHP), both C6H7NCl+·H2PO4 −, form two-dimensional supra­molecular organic–inorganic hybrid frameworks. In 2CADHP, the dihydrogen phosphate anions form a double-stranded anionic chain generated parallel to the [010] direction through O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, whereas in 4CADHP they form a two-dimensional supra­molecular net extending parallel to the crystallographic (001) plane into which the cations are linked through strong N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.

19.  Two polymorphs of chlorido(cyclo­hexyl­diphenyl­phosphine)gold(I) 
The title compound, [AuCl(C18H21P)], a monomeric two-coordinate gold(I) complex, has been characterized at 100 K as two distinct monoclinic polymorphs, one from a single crystal, (Is), and one from a pseudo-merohedrally twinned crystal, (It). The mol­ecular structures in the two monoclinic [P21/n for (Is) and P21/c for (It)] polymorphs are similar; however, the packing arrangements in the two lattices differ considerably. The structure of (It) is pseudo-merohedrally twinned by a twofold rotation about the a* axis.

20.  Two penta­dehydro­peptides with different configurations of the ΔPhe residues 
Comparison of the crystal structures of two penta­dehydro­peptides containing ΔPhe residues, namely (Z,Z)-N-(tert-butoxy­carbonyl)­glycyl-α,β-phenyl­alanyl­glycyl-α,β-phenyl­alanyl­glycine (or Boc0–Gly1–ΔZPhe2–Gly3–ΔZPhe4–Gly5–OH) methanol solvate, C29H33N5O8·CH4O, (I), and (E,E)-N-(tert-butoxy­carbonyl)­glycyl-α,β-phenyl­alanyl­glycyl-α,β-phenyl­alanyl­glycine (or Boc0–Gly1–ΔEPhe2–Gly3–ΔEPhe4–Gly5–OH), C29H33N5O8, (II), indicates that the ΔZPhe residue is a more effective inducer of folded structures than the ΔEPhe residue. The values of the torsion angles ϕ and ψ show the presence of two type-III′ β-turns at the ΔZPhe residues and one type-II β-turn at the ΔEPhe residue. All amino acids are linked trans to each other in both peptides. β-Turns present in the peptides are stabilized by intra­molecular 4→1 hydrogen bonds. Mol­ecules in both structures form two-dimensional hydrogen-bond networks parallel to the (100) plane.

21.  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.

22.  7-Amino-5-methyl-2-phenyl-6-(phenyl­diazenyl)pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine crystallizes with Z′ = 2: pseudosymmetry and the formation of complex sheets built from N—H⋯N and C—H⋯π(arene) hydrogen bonds 
The title compound, C19H16N6, crystallizes with Z′ = 2 in the space group P21/n. The two mol­ecules in the selected asym­metric unit are approximate mirror images of one another; most corresponding pairs of atoms are related by an approximate half-cell translation along [100]. Each mol­ecule contains an intra­molecular N—H⋯N hydrogen bond and the mol­ecules are linked into complex sheets by a combination of two inter­molecular N—H⋯N and four C—H⋯π(arene) hydrogen bonds. Comparisons are made with some other 7-amino­pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines.

23.  Crystal structure and stability of Tl2CO3 at high pressures 
The crystal structure of dithallium carbonate, Tl2CO3 (C2/m, Z = 4), is stable to 5.82 GPa and does not undergo any phase transitions at lower pressures as reported previously. At higher pressures, the material undergoes a phase transition that destroys the single crystal.
The crystal structure of dithallium carbonate, Tl2CO3 (C2/m, Z = 4), was investigated at pressures of up to 7.4 GPa using single-crystal X-ray diffraction in a diamond anvil cell. It is stable to at least 5.82 GPa. All atoms except for one of the O atoms lie on crystallographic mirror planes. At higher pressures, the material undergoes a phase transition that destroys the single crystal.

24.  Ba5Cl4(H2O)8(VPO5)8: a novel three-dimensional framework solid 
The structure of Ba5Cl4(H2O)8(PVO5)8 consists of alternating anionic oxovanadium phosphate (VPO5) and cationic barium chloride hydrate, Ba5Cl4(H2O)8, layers. These layers are linked through Ba—O bonds, generating a three-dimensional framework.
The novel hydro­thermally synthesized title compound, penta­barium tetra­chloride octa­hydrate octa­kis(oxovanadium phosphate), Ba5Cl4(H2O)8(VPO5)8, crystallizes in the ortho­­rhom­bic space group Cmca with a unit cell containing four formula units. Two Ba2+ cations, two Cl− anions and the O atoms of four water mol­ecules are situated on the (100) mirror plane, while the third independent Ba2+ cation is on the inter­section of the (100) plane and the twofold axis parallel to a. Two phosphate P atoms are on twofold axes, while the remaining independent P atom and both V atoms are in general positions. The structure is characterized by two kinds of layers, namely anionic oxovanadium phosphate (VPO5), composed of corner-sharing VO5 square pyramids and PO4 tetra­hedra, and cationic barium chloride hydrate clusters, Ba5Cl4(H2O)8, composed of three Ba2+ cations linked by bridging chloride anions. The layers are connected by Ba—O bonds to generate a three-dimensional structure.

25.  A copper–polyol complex: [Na2(C2H6O2)6][Cu(C2H4O2)2] 
The ionic title complex, bis(μ-ethyl­ene glycol)-κ3 O,O′:O′;κ3 O:O,O′-bis[(ethyl­ene glycol-κ2 O,O′)(ethyl­ene glycol-κO)sodium] bis(ethyl­ene glycolato-κ2 O,O′)copper(II), [Na2(C2H6O2)6][Cu(C2H4O2)2], was obtained from a basic solution of CuCl2 in ethyl­ene glycol and consists of discrete ions inter­connected by O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. This is the first example of a disodium–ethyl­ene glycol complex cation cluster. The cation lies about an inversion center and the CuII atom of the anion lies on another independent inversion center.
