The title compound, (NH4)[Fe4S3(NO) 7]·H2O, contains an Fe4S3 partial cubane core in which the apical iron is coordinated by one nitrosyl group and three S atoms above the plane of three Fe atoms. These three Fe atoms are in turn each coordinated by two S atoms and two nitrosyl groups. The axial O atoms hydrogen bond with the ammonium cation, creating a 'tight' ion-pair, consistent with the solubility of the salt in diethyl ether.
