Sodium tetracalcium pentaniobium heptadecaoxide, NaCa(4)Nb(5)O(17), corresponds to the n = 5 term of the homologous A(n)B(n)O(3n+2) family of structures composed of ABX(3) perovskite layers. The structure consists of perovskite-type blocks of n = 5 layers of NbO(6) octahedra, separated by an interblock region. Successive blocks along the b axis are… (More)
Single crystals of Ba9Rh8O24, grown from a molten potassium carbonate flux, crystallize in the spacegroup R3c with lattice parameters of a = 10.0899(4) and c = 41.462(2) A. Magnetic measurements on oriented single crystals reveal the existence of magnetic anisotropy.
