A solid solution was found to exist in the quaternary Li(2)O-MgO-V(2)O(5)-MoO(3) system between the two phases Mg(2.5)VMoO(8) and Li(2)Mg(2)(MoO(4))(3). Both Mg(2.5)VMoO(8) and Li(2)Mg(2)(MoO(4))(3) are isostructural with the mineral lyonsite, and substitution according to the formula square(1/4-x/6)Li(4x/3)Mg(15/4-7x/6)V(3/2-x)Mo(3/2+x)O(12) (0 < or = x <(More)
Indexing is the process of determining the size, shape and symmetry of the crystallographic unit cell for a crystalline component responsible for a set of peaks in an X-ray powder-diffraction (XRPD) pattern. The authors discuss the valuable information that can be obtained from indexing and its applications in routine screening and analysis of solid forms.(More)
Single crystals of Li(6)CuB(4)O(10) have been synthesized, and its crystal structure has been determined. Li(6)CuB(4)O(10) crystallizes in the non-centrosymmetric triclinic space group P1 (No. 1). The structure consists of isolated [CuB(4)O(10)](6)(-) polyanions that are bridged by six LiO(4) tetrahedra. Li(6)CuB(4)O(10) is a congruently melting compound.(More)
Single crystals of Pb 2 CuB 2 O 6 were grown from a PbO/CuO/B 2 O 3 flux, and crystallize in a monoclinic cell of dimensions a = 5.6311(6), b = 8.7628(9), c = 6.2025(6) A ˚ , and b = 115.7060(10)8 with Z = 2; the space group is P2 1 /c (no. 14). The structure was determined from 662 unique reflections and refined to the final residuals R 1 = 0.0217, wR 2 =(More)
Pb2Cu3B4O11 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2/n (No. 13) with a = 6.8016(15) A, b = 4.7123(10) A, c = 14.614(3) A, beta = 97.089(3) degrees, and Z = 2. The crystal structure consists of infinite [Cu3O8]10- zigzag chains of alternating dimers and monomers. The magnetic susceptibility and specific heat capacity show spin-gap and Curie-Weiss(More)
Mg(2.56)V(1.12)W(0.88)O(8) crystals were grown from a MgO/V(2)O(5)/WO(3) melt. X-ray single-crystal diffraction studies revealed that it is orthorhombic with space group Pnma, a = 5.0658(5) A, b = 10.333(1) A, c = 17.421(2) A, Z = 6, and is isostructural with Mg(2.5)VMoO(8). Raman spectra are reported, and the assignment of the Raman bands is made by(More)
Large single crystals (Φ 5 × L 33 mm) of hematite (R-Fe 2 O 3) have been grown using a CaFe 4 O 7-based solvent and 8 bar of oxygen in a four-mirror optical floating zone furnace in the traveling solvent zone configuration. The crystals grow along the [001] direction, are of excellent quality, and contain no residual Ca contamination from the solvent.(More)

Three crystalline hemi-hydrate, channel solvates (classified as solvates from here on) of finasteride (N-(1,1-di-methylethyl)-3-oxo-4-aza-5 alpha-androst-1-ene-17beta-carboxamide) have been obtained and fully characterized. The acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), and toluene solvates of finasteride, described herein, were found to be isostructural and(More)
