Abstract

Diammonium carbonate hydrogen peroxide monosolvate, 2NH 4 +·CO 3 2-·H 2O 2, (I), and dicaesium carbonate hydrogen peroxide tris-olvate, 2Cs +·CO 3 2-·3H 2O 2, (II), were crystallized from 98% hydrogen peroxide. In (I), the carbonate anions and peroxide solvent mol-ecules are arranged on twofold axes. The peroxide mol-ecules act as donors in only two hydrogen bonds with carbonate groups, forming chains along the a and c axes. In the structure of (II), there are three independent Cs + ions, two of them residing on twofold axes, as are two of the four peroxide mol-ecules, one of which is disordered. Both structures comprise complicated three-dimensional hydro-gen-bonded networks.
