Metals in Biology and Medicine, III. — Bismuth Lactate: Synthesis and Structure of a Hydroxycarboxylate Complex As a compound of medical relevance, bismuth (S)‐lactate was synthesized and structurally characterized (single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction). Exploiting the versatile coordination chemistry of carboxylate groups (chelating and bridging ligands), the crystal structure is based upon a three‐dimensional network, showing bismuth in a high coordination number environment.
