A novel clathrate phase, Ba8Au16P30, was synthesized from its elements. High-resolution powder X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy were used to establish the crystal structure of the new compound. Ba8Au16P30 crystallizes in an orthorhombic superstructure of clathrate-I featuring a complete separation of gold and phosphorus atoms over(More)
A new clathrate type has been discovered in the Ba/Cu/Zn/P system. The crystal structure of the Ba8 M24 P28+δ (M=Cu/Zn) clathrate is composed of the pentagonal dodecahedra common to clathrates along with a unique 22-vertex polyhedron with two hexagonal faces capped by additional partially occupied phosphorus sites. This is the first example of a clathrate(More)
The high pressure properties of the novel tetrel-free clathrate, Ba₈Cu13.1Zn3.3P29.6, were investigated using synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction. The pressure was applied using a diamond anvil cell. No structural transitions or decomposition were detected in the studied pressure range of 0.1-7 GPa. The calculated bulk modulus for Ba₈Cu13.1Zn3.3P29.6 using(More)
Synthesis, crystal structures, and chemical bonding are reported for four binary phosphides with different degrees of phosphorus oligomerization, ranging from isolated P atoms to infinite phosphorus chains. Ba3P2 = Ba4P(2.67)□(0.33) (□ = vacancy) crystallizes in the anti-Th3P4 structure type with the cubic space group I4̅3d (no. 220), Z = 6, a = 9.7520(7)(More)

A polyphosphide, mP-BaP3, with a unique two-dimensional phosphorus layer has been discovered and characterized. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2₁/c with unit-cell parameters a=6.486(1), b=7.710(1), c=8.172(2) Å; β=104.72(3)°; Z=4. Its phosphorus polyanion can be derived from the strong elongation of 2/3 of the P-P bonds present in the layers(More)
Barium gold polyphosphide BaAu2P4 was synthesized from elements and structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. BaAu2P4 crystallizes in a new structure type, in the orthorhombic space group Fddd (No. 70) with a = 6.517(1) Å, b = 8.867(2) Å, c = 21.844(5) Å. The crystal structure of BaAu2P4 consists of Au–P layers separated by layers of(More)
Order-disorder-order phase transitions in the clathrate-I Ba8Cu16P30 were induced and controlled by aliovalent substitutions of Zn into the framework. Unaltered Ba8Cu16P30 crystallizes in an ordered orthorhombic (Pbcn) clathrate-I superstructure that maintains complete segregation of metal and phosphorus atoms over 23 different crystallographic positions in(More)
