The structure of the monohydrate of α-4-(β-D-galactopyran-osido) -D-glucopyranose, more commonly known as α-lactose monohydrate, C 12H22O11·H2O, has been previously studied by single-crystal diffraction at ca 296 K [Beevers & Hansen (1971). Acta Cryst. B27, 1323-1325; Fries et al. (1971). Acta Cryst. B27, 994-1005; Noordik etal (1984). Z. Kristallogr. 168, 59-65]. This redetermination at low temperature [150 (2) K] shows improved precision of geometry. Graph-set analysis of the hydrogen-bonding motifs is presented for the first time. © 2005 International Union of Crystallography Printed in Great Britain - all rights reserved.
