By slow evaporation of solutions containing UO2(ClO4)(2) and an excess of HClO4, single crystals of [UO2(ClO4)(2)(H2O)(3)] (1) and [UO2(H2O)(5)](ClO4)(2) (2) were obtained and their structures were determined. From similar solutions prepared from stoichiometric amounts of UO3 and perchloric acid, crystals of [UO2(H2O)(5)](ClO4)(2)(.)2H(2)O (3) were obtained. The trihydrate (monoclinic, P2(1)/c, a=545.44(1) pm, b=1811.09(5) pm, c = 1032.46(2) pm, beta=90.016(1)degrees)consists of uranyl ions, which are coordinated by two monodentate perchlorate ions and three water molecules. The pentahydrate (monoclinic, P2(1)/n, a=529.35(2) pm, b=1645.43(6) pm, c = 1480.18(6) pm, beta=99.847(1)degrees)contains uranyl ions coordinated by five water molecules. The same structural unit can be found in the heptahydrate, whose structure was re-determined (orthorhombic, Pbcn, a=920.9(3) pm, b=1067.9(3) pm, c=1445.7(3) pm). In this structure, two molecules of water of crystallization are present.
