Abstract

[C2N2H10][VOF4(H2O)] spontaneously crystallises in the polar space group P2(1); strongly distorted V- centred octahedral units form polar chains via head-to-tail H-bonding which, in turn, cooperate via the organic template to form a crystal exhibiting a strong SHG signal. It is suggested that the polar ordering arises from a preference for misalignment of the polar octahedra with the polar chain direction, leading to favourable, asymmetric template - chain H- bonding interactions.
