Dipotassium carbonate sesquihydrate: rerefinement against new intensity data

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The redetermination of the structure of the title compound, K2CO3.1.5H(2)O, agrees with the results previously reported by Hunter & Jeffrey [J. Chem. Phys (1967), 47, 3297-3302], but with improved precision. The structure is described in terms of the hydrogen-bonding network and the K-O framework, and the C-O bond lengths are compared with those found in other reported alkali carbonate hydrates.
