Title: Crystal structure of pentasodium hydrogen dicitrate from synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction data and DFT comparison

Abstract

The crystal structure of pentasodium hydrogen dicitrate, Na 5H(C 6H 5O 7) 2, has been solved and refined using synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction data, and optimized using density functional techniques. Each of the two independent citrate anions is joined into a dimer by very strong centrosymmetric O—H...O hydrogen bonds, with O...O distances of 2.419 and 2.409 Å. Four octahedrally coordinated Na +ions share edges to form open layers parallel to theabplane. A fifth Na +ion in trigonal–bipyramidal coordination shares faces with NaO 6octahedra on both sides of these layers.

  • The crystal structures of four samples of anhydrite, CaSO{sub 4}, were obtained by Rietveld refinements using synchrotron high-resolution powder X-ray diffraction (HRPXRD) data and space group Amma. As an example, for one sample of anhydrite from Hants County, Nova Scotia, the unit-cell parameters are a = 7.00032(2), b = 6.99234(1), c = 6.24097(1) {angstrom}, and V = 305.487(1) {angstrom}{sup 3} with a > b. The eight-coordinated Ca atom has an average <Ca-O> distance of 2.4667(4) {angstrom}. The tetrahedral SO{sub 4} group has two independent S-O distances of 1.484(1) to O1 and 1.478(1) {angstrom} to O2 and an average <S-O> distancemore » of 1.4810(5) {angstrom}. The three independent O-S-O angles [108.99(8) x 1, 110.38(3) x 4, 106.34(9){sup o} x 1; average <O-S-O> [6] = 109.47(2){sup o}] and S-O distances indicate that the geometry of the SO{sub 4} group is quite distorted in anhydrite. The four anhydrite samples have structural trends where the a, b, and c unit-cell parameters increase linearly with increasing unit-cell volume, V, and their average <Ca-O> and <S-O> distances are nearly constant. The grand mean <Ca-O> = 2.4660(2) {angstrom}, and grand mean <S-O> = 1.4848(3) {angstrom}, the latter is longer than 1.480(1) {angstrom} in celestite, SrSO{sub 4}, as expected.« less
  • The crystal structures of divalent metal salts of trifluoromethyl sulfonic acid ('trifluoromethyl sulfonates') M(SO{sub 3}CF{sub 3}){sub 2} (M = Mg, Ca, Ba, Zn, Cu) were determined from high-resolution X-ray powder diffraction data. Magnesium, calcium and zinc trifluoromethyl sulfonate crystallize in the rhombohedral space group R{bar 3}. Barium trifluoromethyl sulfonate crystallizes in the monoclinic space group I2/a(C2/c) and copper trifluoromethyl sulfonate crystallizes in the triclinic group P{bar 1}. Within the crystal structures the trifluoromethyl sulfonate anions are arranged in double layers with the apolar CF{sub 3} groups pointing towards each other. The cations are located next to the SO{sub 3} groups.more » The symmetry relations between the different crystal structures have been analyzed.« less
  • The crystal structures of K{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7}, KNaS{sub 2}O{sub 7} and Na{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7} have been solved and/or refined from X-ray synchrotron powder diffraction data and conventional single-crystal data. K{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7}: From powder diffraction data, monoclinic C2/c, Z=4, a=12.3653(2), b=7.3122(1), c=7.2868(1)A, {beta}=93.0792(7){sup o}, R{sub Bragg}=0.096. KNaS{sub 2}O{sub 7}: From powder diffraction data; triclinic P1-bar , Z=2, a=5.90476(9), b=7.2008(1), c=7.4188(1)A, {alpha}=101.7074(9), {beta}=90.6960(7), {gamma}=94.2403(9){sup o}, R{sub Bragg}=0.075. Na{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7}: From single-crystal data; triclinic P1-bar , Z=2, a=6.7702(9), b=6.7975(10), c=6.7292(9)A, {alpha}=116.779(2), {beta}=96.089(3), {gamma}=84.000(3){sup o}, R{sub F}=0.033. The disulphate anions are essentially eclipsed. All three structures can bemore » described as dichromate-like, where the alkali cations coordinate oxygens of the isolated disulphate groups in three-dimensional networks. The K-O and Na-O coordinations were determined from electron density topology and coordination geometry. The three structures have a cation-disulphate chain in common. In K{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7} and Na{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7} the neighbouring chains are antiparallel, while in KNaS{sub 2}O{sub 7} the chains are parallel. The differences between the K{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7} and Na{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 7} structures, with double-, respectively single-sided chain connections and straight, respectively, corrugated structural layers can be understood in terms of the differences in size and coordinating ability of the cations.« less
