Abstract

Sodium pentafluorobenzoate monohydrate, Na+[C6F5CO2](-) center dot H2O crystallizes with two such formula units in the asymmetric unit of a monoclinic P2(1) lattice. It forms a novel two-dimensional array based on Na2O2 rhombs, which combine sequentially in one dimension to generate a 'cubanoid stair' structure, in the network of which 'chair', 'open cubane', and other derivative motives may be discerned, and in which unusual Na center dot center dot center dot F interactions feature.
