AbstractThe title compound, poly[[μ-trihydro-(isoprop-oxy)-borato]-sodium(I)], [Na(C3H10BO)] n , forms unique polymeric layers normal to the c axis via Na +⋯O [2.3405 (15) Å] and Na+⋯H(borane) [2.22 (3) and 2.28 (3) Å] inter-actions. This arrangement builds on distorted tetra-hedral Na+, oxygen and boron environments, with one of the borane hydride units uncoordinated, and highlights potential H3B - O-based chemistry. © 2009 International Union of Crystallography.
