The structure of the hemihydrate of sodium phenoxyacetate, Na+·C8H7O3-·0.5H2O, has been redetermined at low temperature (160K). The structure consists of ribbons containing octahedral NaO6 units, and half of the Na2O2 squares within the ribbon are bridged by water molecules which lie across twofold rotation axes in C2/c. The phenyl substituents lie on the outside of the ribbon.
