    Powder pattern indexing can still be a challenge, despite the great recent advances in theoretical approaches, computer speed and experimental devices. More plausible unit cells, belonging to different crystal systems, are frequently found by the indexing programs, and recognition of the correct one may not be trivial. The task is, however, of extreme importance: in case of failure a lot of effort and computing time may be wasted. The classical figures of merit for estimating the unit-cell reliability {i.e.M20 [de Wolff (1968). J. Appl. Cryst.1, 108–113] and FN [Smith & Snyder (1979). J. Appl. Cryst.12, 60–65]} sometimes fail. For this reason, a new figure of merit has been introduced in N-TREOR09, the updated version of the indexing package N-TREOR [Altomare, Giacovazzo, Guagliardi, Moliterni, Rizzi & Werner (2000). J. Appl. Cryst. 33, 1180–1186], combining the information supplied by M20 with additional parameters such as the number of unindexed lines, the degree of overlap in the pattern (the so-called number of statistically independent observations), the symmetry deriving from the automatic evaluation of the extinction group, and the agreement between the calculated and observed profiles. The use of the new parameters requires a dramatic modification of the procedures used worldwide: in the approach presented here, extinction symbol and unit-cell determination are simultaneously estimated. N-TREOR09 benefits also from an improved indexing procedure in the triclinic system and has been integrated into EXPO2009, the updated version of EXPO2004 [Altomare, Caliandro, Camalli, Cuocci, Giacovazzo, Moliterni & Rizzi (2004). J. Appl. Cryst. 37, 1025–1028]. The application of the new procedure to a large set of test structures is described.

    The OH-dipole in the mineral zoisite has been a topic of discussion regarding its general orientation and vibrational modes. We present new polarized single-crystal Raman and infrared spectra and verify the orientation of the OH-dipole along the crystallographic c axis with a slight deviation towards the crystallographic a axis. Polarized Raman and FTIR spectra confirm that the OH band at 3150 cm(-1) corresponds to the O(10)-H center dot center dot center dot O(4) hydrogen bridge and exclude a previously suggested second hydrogen bridge O(10)-H center dot center dot center dot O(2). Further, Raman spectra provide insights on the luminescence of zoisite and the interference of luminescence peaks in the OH-region.

    The title hydrate, C19H34O13·5H2O, contains a vicinally disubstituted tris­accharide in which the two terminal rhamnosyl sugar groups are positioned adjacent to each other. The conformation of the tris­accharide is described by the glycosidic torsion angles ϕ2 = 48 (1)°, ψ2 = −29 (1)°, ϕ3 = 44 (1)° and ψ3 = 4 (1)°, whereas the ψ2 torsion angle represents a conformation from the major state in solution, the ψ3 torsion angle conformation may have been caught near a potential energy saddle-point when compared to its solution structure, in which at least two but probably three conformational states are populated. Extensive inter­molecular O—HO hydrogen bonding is present in the crystal and a water-containing channel is formed along the b-axis direction.
