The compound [NH3(CH2)9NH3]2[(UO2)3(SeO4)5(H2O)2](H2O)x (1) was prepared by isothermal evaporation from aqueous uranyl selenate solutions containing 1,9-diaminononane. A structural study showed that the compound is a partially ordered organic-inorganic nanocomposite. The structural model of the inorganic complex was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction a = 19.5572(5), c = 47.878(2) Å, V= 15859.1(9) Å3, Z= 12; R1 = 0.1318, wR2 = 0.3186 for 2808 reflections with |Fo| ≥ 4σF). The structure consists of double hydrogen-bonded [(UO2)3(SeO4)5(H2O)2]2- layers parallel to the (001) plane. The disordered protonated 1,9-diaminononane molecules and water molecules are arranged between the layers. The inorganic layered complex [(UO2)3(SeO4)5(H2O)2]2- belongs to a new type that was not observed previously in the structures of inorganic and organometallic compounds.
