Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In the title compound, (C3H12N2O)[ Zn(HPO3)(2)]center dot 0.5H(2)O, the inorganic macroanionic chain is built up from ZnO4 tetrahedra and HPO3 pseudo-pyramids sharing vertices. The organic dication shows positional disorder of its central -OH group in a 0.614 ( 7): 0.386 ( 7) ratio. The components interact by way of O-H center dot center dot center dot O and N-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds. The Zn atom lies on a crystallographic twofold axis and one C atom, the disordered O atoms of the -OH groups and the water O atom lie on a crystallographic mirror plane.
