Physalis angulataL., an annual herb from the Solanaceae family, is widely used in popular medicine in tropical countries to treat a variety of diseases. Two products, (X) and (Y), were isolated from a crude CH2Cl2extract of dried CongolesePhysalis angulataL. plants and crystallized from acetone for structure elucidation. Compound (X) corresponds to a physalin B dimer acetone solvate hydrate (2C28H30O9·C3H6O·0.22H2O), while compound (Y) crystallizes as a mixed crystal containing two physalin B molecules which overlap with 5β,6β-epoxyphysalin B, also known as physalin F, and one acetone molecule in the asymmetric unit (1.332C28H30O9·0.668C28H30O10·C3H6O). Antiplasmodial activity, cytotoxic activity and selectivity indices were determined for crude extracts and the two isolated products (X) and (Y).

The title compounds, C14H9NOS, (1), and C14H9NO2S, (2), are oxidation products of the parent compound 10-ethynyl-10H-phenothiazine. They differ with respect to transannular interactions, the intramolecular S...N contact being shorter in (2). Intermolecular Csp—H...O hydrogen bonds were detected in both crystals, and (1) was found to form stronger hydrogen bonds. These results are in agreement with the lower acidity of Csp—H in (2), caused by an increase in π-electron density due to the transannular S...N interaction.

Three three-dimensional coordination polymers,viz.poly[[diaqua-μ4-oxydiacetato-di-μ4-sulfato-dipraseodymium(III)] hemihydrate], [Pr2(C4H4O5)(SO4)2(H2O)2]·0.5H2O, (I), poly[[diaquadi-μ3-oxydiacetato-μ3-sulfato-dineodymium(III)] 1.32-hydrate], [Nd2(C4H4O5)2(SO4)(H2O)2]·1.32H2O, (II), and poly[[diaquadi-μ3-oxydiacetato-μ3-sulfato-disamarium(III)] 1.32-hydrate], [Sm2(C4H4O5)2(SO4)(H2O)2]·1.32H2O, (III), were obtained by hydrothermal reactions of the respective lanthanide oxides and ZnSO4with oxydiacetic acid (odaH2). The Nd3+and Sm3+compounds form isomorphous crystal structures in which the lanthanide cations are nine-coordinate, having a tricapped trigonal prismatic coordination. The Pr3+compound has an entirely different crystal structure in which two types of coordination polyhedra are observed,viz.nine-coordinate (trigonal prism) and ten-coordinate (bicapped square antiprism). The sulfate anions show various coordination modes, one of which has only rarely been observed crystallographically to date.

The title 1,4-naphthoquinone, 2-dichloromethyl-3-methyl-1,4-dihydronaphthalene-1,4-dione, C12H8Cl2O2, is a chlorinated derivative of vitamin K3, which is a synthetic compound also known as menadione. Molecules of (I) are planar and lie on a crystallographic mirror plane (Z′ = 0.5) in the space groupPnma. They are connected to each other by C—H...O hydrogen bonds, forming two-dimensional layers parallel to theacplane. In addition, Cl...Cl and π–π interactions link adjacent molecules in different layers, thus forming zigzag ribbons along thebaxis, such that a three-dimensional architecture is generated.

The complex [1,2-bis(di-tert-butylphosphanyl)ethane-κ2P,P′]diiodidonickel(II), [NiI2(C18H40P2] or (dtbpe-κ2P)NiI2, [dtbpe is 1,2-bis(di-tert-butylphosphanyl)ethane], is bright blue–green in the solid state and in solution, but, contrary to the structure predicted for a blue or green nickel(II) bis(phosphine) complex, it is found to be close to square planar in the solid state. The solution structure is deduced to be similar, because the optical spectra measured in solution and in the solid state contain similar absorptions. In solution at room temperature, no31P{1H} NMR resonance is observed, but the very small solid-state magnetic moment at temperatures down to 4 K indicates that the weak paramagnetism of this nickel(II) complex can be ascribed to temperature independent paramagnetism, and that the complex has no unpaired electrons. The red [1,2-bis(di-tert-butylphosphanyl)ethane-κ2P,P′]dichloridonickel(II), [NiCl2(C18H40P2] or (dtbpe-κ2P)NiCl2, is very close to square planar and very weakly paramagnetic in the solid state and in solution, while the maroon [1,2-bis(di-tert-butylphosphanyl)ethane-κ2P,P′]dibromidonickel(II), [NiBr2(C18H40P2] or (dtbpe-κ2P)NiBr2, is isostructural with the diiodide in the solid state, and displays paramagnetism intermediate between that of the dichloride and the diiodide in the solid state and in solution. Density functional calculations demonstrate that distortion from an ideal square plane for these complexes occurs on a flat potential energy surface. The calculations reproduce the observed structures and colours, and explain the trends observed for these and similar complexes. Although theoretical investigation identified magnetic-dipole-allowed excitations that are characteristic for temperature-independent paramagnetism (TIP), theory predicts the molecules to be diamagnetic.

The two centrosymmetric dinuclear copper paddle-wheel complexes tetrakis(μ-4-hydroxybenzoato-κ2O:O′)bis[aquacopper(II)] dimethylformamide disolvate dihydrate, [Cu2(C7H5O3)4(H2O)2]·2C3H7NO·2H2O, (I), and tetrakis(μ-4-methoxybenzoato-κ2O:O′)bis[(dimethylformamide-κO)copper(II)], [Cu2(C8H7O3)4(C3H7NO)2], (II), crystallize with half of the dinuclear paddle-wheel cage unit in the asymmetric unit and, in addition, complex (I) has one dimethylformamide (DMF) and one water solvent molecule in the asymmetric unit. In both (I) and (II), two CuIIions are bridged by foursyn,syn11:μ carboxylate groups, showing a paddle-wheel cage-type structure with a square-pyramidal coordination geometry. The equatorial positions of (I) and (II) are occupied by the carboxylate groups of 4-hydroxy- and 4-methoxybenzoate ligands, and the axial positions are occupied by aqua and DMF ligands, respectively. The three-dimensional supramolecular metal–organic framework of (I) consists of three differentR22(20) and anR44(36) ring motif formedviaO—H...O and OW—HW...O hydrogen bonds. Complex (II) simply packs as molecular species.

The title salt, C8H12NO+·C7H10NO5, crystallizes in two polymorphic modifications,viz.monoclinic (M) and orthorhombic (O). The crystal structures of both polymorphic modifications have been established from laboratory powder diffraction data. The crystal packing motifs in the two polymorphs are different, but the conformations of the anions are generally similar. InM, the anions are linked by pairs of hydrogen bonds of the N—H...O and O—H...O types into chains along theb-axis direction, and neighbouring molecules within the chain are related by the 21screw axis. The cations link these chainsviaO—H...O and N—H...O hydrogen bonds into layers parallel to (001). InO, the anions are linked by O—H...O hydrogen bonds into helices along [001], and neighbouring molecules within the helix are related by the 21screw axis. The neighbouring helical turns are linked by N—H...O hydrogen bonds. The cations link the helicesviaO—H...O and N—H...O hydrogen bonds, thus forming a three-dimensional network.

The title salts calcium (glycinato-κ2N,O)oxidobis(peroxido-κ2O,O′)vanadate(V) tetrahydrate, Ca[VO(O2)2(NH2CH2COO)]·4H2O, and strontium (glycinato-κ2N,O)oxidobis(peroxido-κ2O,O′)vanadate(V) tetrahydrate, Sr[VO(O2)2(NH2CH2COO)]·4H2O, crystallized at pHca7.4 with similar lattice parameters. The glycinate anion acts as a bidentateN,O-chelating ligand, and the V atom has a pentagonal bipyramidal geometry, with two η2-peroxo groups and the glycinate N atom in the equatorial plane, and one terminal oxo and a glycinate O atom at the axial positions. The H atoms of three of the four water molecules in the strontium salt exhibited disorder over three positions for each molecule.

Over the last 30 years, the single-crystal photocrystallographic technique has been developed to determine the three-dimensional crystal and molecular structures of metastable species which have been generated in the crystal photochemically. Transition-metal complexes that have been investigated using this methodology include complexes that contain nitrosyl, dinitrogen, sulfur dioxide and nitrite ligands, all of which form new linkage isomers in the solid state when photoactivated by light of the appropriate wavelength. Both steric and electronic factors determine the level of the conversion from the ground-state structure to the metastable isomeric structure, and both the `reaction cavity' size and the nature of the intermolecular interactions are shown to be among the key factors that influence the percentage conversion.
