The chemical bonding and the electronic band structures of two isoelectronic and isostructural Zintl compounds, Sr(11)Cd(6)Sb(12) and Ba(11)Cd(6)Sb(12), have been studied on the basis of the density-functional theory (DFT) using the tight-binding linear-muffin-tin-orbital (TB-LMTO-ASA) approach and the local-density approximation (LDA). These results reveal(More)
Ba(2)Cd(2.13)Bi(3)O, a new bis-muthide(-I,-III) oxide, crystallizes with a novel body-centered tetra-gonal structure (Pearson code tI36). The crystal structure contains eight crystallographically unique sites in the asymmetric unit, all on special positions. Two Ba, one Cd and two Bi atoms have site symmetry 4mm, the third Bi atom has mmm. and the O atom(More)
The title compound, penta-barium tetra-indium hexa-anti-mony, was synthesized by an indium-flux reaction and its structure features layers composed of edge-sharing In2Sb6 units. The voids between the In4Sb6 layers are filled by Ba(2+) cations, which are all surrounded by six Sb atoms and form bicapped octa-hedral or triangular prismatic coordination(More)
The previous structure determination of the title compound, dibarium tritelluridocadmate, was based on powder X-ray diffraction data [Wang & DiSalvo (1999 ▶). J. Solid State Chem.148, 464-467]. In the current redetermination from single-crystal X-ray data, all atoms were refined with anisotropic displacement parameters. The previous structure report is(More)
