Abstract

Single crystals of anhydrous strontium oxalate have been prepared by hydrothermal synthesis in the presence of divalent transition metal ions. Strontium is eight coordinate with approximate square antiprismatic geometry. The SrO polyhedra form a 3-dimensional network by sharing edges and vertices. This structure is compared to that of the strontium oxalate hydrates and related calcium minerals weddelite Ca(C2O4)(H2O)2 and whewellite Ca(C2O4)(H2O).
