Abstract: Two new three-dimensional lanthanide oxalates [Pr2(C2O4)3(H2O)4]·2H2O (1) and [Nd2(C2O4)3(H2O)4]·2H2O (2) and a two-dimensional oxalate [Pr2(C2O4)3(H2O)6]·3H2O (3) have been prepared by hydrothermal process and characterized by single crystal X-ray analysis. Compound (1) crystallizes in monoclinic crystal system with P21/c space group whereas (2) crystallizes in triclinic crystal system with Pī space group. Although Pr and Nd are twin lanthanides, they have produced different crystal structures under the same reaction conditions. Compound (3) is produced by the in situ hydrothermal degradation of tartaric acid to oxalate ions in presence of KI. In this reaction, the iodide anion instead of metal cation, acts as the reducing agent during the degradation of tartaric acid to oxalate. Thermogravimetric, elemental analysis and IR studies have also been carried out for these compounds.
