Abstract
The reaction of Zn(NO3)(2)center dot 3(H2O) with trans-aconitic acid (H3L), in presence of chelating 1,10-phenanthroline, leads to the formation of a dinuclear unit {[Zn(HL)(phen)(H2O)]center dot 3(H2O)}(2). The lattice water molecules are assembled as a centrosymmetric hexamer. The crystal structure, thermal studies, theoretical calculations, and the factors that stabilize this water hexamer are presented. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
