Abstract Neutron structure determinations have been made of Tutton's salts, X2[M(H2O)6] (YO4)2, where Y = Se, X = K+, M = Cu2+; Y = S, X = K+, M = Ni2+, Cu2+, Zn2+; X = Rb+, Cs+, M = Cu2+. This work has shown that there are extensive hydrogen networks with almost linear hydrogen bonds from [M(H2O)6]2+ to (YO4)2-. The (H ... O) distance increases in the Cu2+ series for X = K+ to Cs+ but there is no difference for the potassium copper salts when Y = Se or S. Three different distorted [M(H2O)6]2+ octahedra were found in the series (orthorhombic, tetragonal with two long and four short, or four long and two short bonds). The interatomic distances from X+ to the neighboring O in a distorted XO8+ dodecahedron increases with increased cation size, implying that the X+ polyhedron is maintaining its shape.
