Lead(II) oxydiacetate hydrate
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1999
The coordination polyhedron around the Pb atom in the title compound, poly[aqualead(II)-mu(5)-oxydiacetato], [Pb(mu(5)-C4H4O5)(H2O)](n), is a distorted square antiprism formed by three O atoms from one oxydiacetate ligand, four O atoms from four other identical ligands and one water O atom, resulting in a three-dimensional network structure. The almost planar oxydiacetate ligand is disordered over two positions. The Pb lone-pair 6s(2) electrons show stereochemical activity in the coordination sphere.
