X-ray crystal structure analyses and refinements are described of six compounds having structures in which a second-row element (aluminium, silicon, phosphorus, or sulphur) is bonded to four atoms of a first-row element (nitrogen or oxygen). The dimensions of molecules and ions of this type provide information leading to an improved understanding of the pi-bonding in compounds of the second-row elements. Least-squares refinement was used in each case to obtain atomic co-ordinates and molecular dimensions, together with the estimated standard deviations of these quantities.
