Acta Crystallogr Sect E Struct Rep Online. 2007 Dec 12;64(Pt 1):m154-5. doi: 10.1107/S1600536807065221.


In the title complex, [Rb(C(36)H(61)O(11))]·2H(2)O, the Rb(+) cation is coordinated by seven O atoms of monensin. Rb-O distances range from 2.7870 (17) to 3.1429 (17) Å. Both O atoms of the carboxyl-ate group are involved in the coordination of Rb. The structure displays inter- and intra-molecular O-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen-bonding inter-actions.
