ABSTRACT The crystal structure of calcium succinate monohydrate, Ca(C4H4O4)H2O, has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The crystals are monoclinic witha=11.952(2),b=9.691(2),c=11.606(2), =108.81(1), space group C2/c,Z=8,V=1272.49 3,d

One carboxylate group in the succinate ion is bonded to three different Ca ions, forming a four-membered chelate ring with one Ca ion is bonded to three different Ca ions, forming a four-membered chelate ring with one Ca ion and unidentate bridge bonds to two other Ca ions. The other carboxylate group is bonded to two Ca ions through unidentate bonds. The structure is highly polymeric. The general structural features are nearly identical to those of calcium adipate monohydrate.

    ABSTRACT: The crystal structure of calcium adipate monohydrate, Ca(C6H8O4)H2O, has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction study. The crystals are triclinic witha=5.8990(3),b=6.7985(5),c=10.8212(6),=78.999(5),=81.831(5), and =82.971(5), space group P1,Z=2,V=419.65(8)3,d m=1.59,d c=1.600 Mg m–3. The structure was refined by full-matrix least-squares techniques toR=0.040,R w=0.058 for 1283 reflections withI3(I). Ca is coordinated to seven oxygen atoms and the coordination polyhedron is best described as pentagonal bipyramid. The coordinations of the two carboxylate groups in adipate ion are quite different. One carboxylate group binds three different Ca ions forming a four-membered chelate ring with one Ca ion and unidentate bridge bonds to two other Ca ions. The other carboxylate group links to two Ca ions through unidentate bonds. The structure is highly polymeric, but with a layertype structure parallel to (001) with the hydrocarbon chains sandwiched between the polar regions consisting of Ca, carboxylate and water molecules.

    ABSTRACT: The crystal structure of octacalcium bis(hydrogenphosphate) tetrakis(phosphate)pentahydrate, Ca8(HPO4)2(PO4)4·5H2O, has been refined toR=0.051 for 4502 reflections. The crystals are triclinic:P¯1,a=19.692(4),b=9.523(2),c=6.835(2) Å,a=90.15(2),ß=92.54(2), and ?=108.65(1)°,Z=2. The structure can be considered to consist of two layers parallel to (100), an apatitic layer which corresponds very closely to that of hydroxyapatite and a hydrated layer which contains all the water molecules. Several atoms in the hydrated layer are probably disordered. Possibilities for the hydrogen-bonding arrangement are discussed.
