Single crystal structural characterizations are reported for a pair of bismuth(III)/oxinate ('ox') complexes, formulated as [Bi(ox)(3)(OH2)](2) and [BiPh(ox)(2)(O-dmso)](2) respectively In the former, analytically significant, species the Bi(ox)(3) coordination sphere is augmented by dimerization by way of bridging interactions through two of the ox oxygen donor atoms and a residue modelled as a coordinated water molecule oxygen atom. In the dmso complex, a novel pentagonal pyramidal coordination environment (Ph at the apex) is described, presumably consequent on the effect of close eta(6)-interactions of the bismuth with the carbocyclic ring of one of the ox ligands of an adjacent, inversion-related molecule.
