Abstract: Mercurous nitrite, first reported by P C Ray in 1896, has a centrosymmetric structure with unsymmetrical nitrite chelation consistent with the hybridization of the metal-metal bond. When left in air with adhering mother liquor it is slowly transformed into a stable basic salt, Hg6(OH)2(NO3)4, having a centrosymmetric zigzag structure in which each of the OH group bridges two mercurous moieties and pairs of nitrate ions cap the terminal metal atoms. In both, relatively weak intermolecular Hg-O bonding is present in the lattice. The basic salt (n = 2) belongs to a homologous family of general formula Hg2{(OH)Hg2}n(NO3)n+2.
