Abstract: The structure of tetrakis(pyridinioacetate) neodymium(III) tetrahydrate perchlorate, [Nd(pyBET)4 · 4H2O](ClO4)3, is reported. The neodymium atom is eight-coordinate dodecahedrally distorted polyhedron. The molecule consists of discrete [Nd(pyBET)4 · 4H2O]3+ cation and perchlorate anions held by ionic electrostatic force.
Keywords: coordination compounds - neodymium(III) - pyridinioacetate complex - perchlorate
