Extended structural studies, largely determinations at ,150 K, of the family of hydrates of [Co(NH3)6][Ln(dipic)3]
(Ln¼La–Lu, and Y; dipic¼dipicolinate¼pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate) have provided detailed evidence of the nature of
the interactions between the formally achiral cation and the chiral anions. They also provide a reference point for
consideration of related systems incorporating chiral cations with and without the capacity to act as H-bond donors.
