The (3+1)-dimensional modulated structure of the LiZn(4 - x) (x = 0.825) binary compound has been determined in the superspace. The compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic superspace group Cmcm(α00)0s0 with a = 2.7680 (6), b = 4.7942 (6), c = 4.3864 (9) Å, modulation wavevector: q ≃ 4/7a*. The structure is a derivative from the hexagonal close packing.(More)
Crystal structures of low- and high-temperature modifications of the binary phase Li(2)Zn(3) were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. The low-temperature modification is a disordered variant of Li(5)Sn(2), space group R\bar 3m (No. 166). The high-temperature modification crystallizes as an anti-type to Li(5)Ga(4), space group P\bar(More)
A new quaternary dicerium lithium/nickel disilicide, Ce2Li0.39Ni1.61Si2, crystallizes as a new structure type of intermetallic compounds closely related to the AlB2 family. The crystal-chemical interrelationships between parent AlB2-type, BaLiSi, ZrBeSi and the title compound are discussed using the Bärnighausen formalism. Two Ce atoms occupy sites of 3m.(More)
Single crystals of didysprosium heptanickel tritin were synthesized from the constituent elements by arc-melting. Two of the five Ni atoms are at general sites and all other atoms are at sites with either twofold or m symmetry. The structure contains 'DyNi(5)Sn' and 'DyNi(2)Sn(2)' fragments and represents a new member of the CaCu(5) series of intermetallics.
Penta-zirconium copper tribismuth, Zr5CuBi3, crystallizes in the hexa-gonal Hf5CuSn3 structure type. The asymmetric unit contains two Zr sites (site symmetries 3.2 and m2m), one Cu site (site symmetry 3.m) and one Bi site (site symmetry m2m). The environment of the Bi atoms is a tetra-gonal anti-prism with one added atom and a coordination number (CN) of 9.(More)
A novel quaternary mixed halogenide, Tl5Hg2Br5I4, was synthesized by fusion of thallium bromide and mercury iodide in a 5:2 molar ratio. The crystal structure of Tl5Hg2Br5I4 represents a new series of composite structures described by the general formula nTlBr*mTl2[HgBr2I2]; in this case, n = 4 and m = 8. Electronic structure calculations indicate that the(More)
Single crystals of pentaerbium trinickel trialuminium tetragermanium were synthesized from the elements by arc-melting. The novel compound crystallizes in the space group Pmmn, e6b2a, with all nine crystallographically unique atoms in special positions of site symmetries m.. and mm2. This compound represents a new ordered variant of the NbCoB type. Its(More)
The new ternary phase penta-terbium lithium tris-tannide, Tb(5)LiSn(3), crystallizes in the hexa-gonal Hf(5)CuSn(3) structure type, which is a 'filled' version of the binary RE(5)Sn(3) phases (Mn(5)Si(3)-type) (RE is rare earth). The asymmetric unit contains two Tb sites (site symmetries 3.2 and m2m), one Li site (site symmetry [Formula: see text].m) and(More)
The crystal structure of the already known binary title compound LaZn(5) (lanthanum penta-zinc) (space group P6/mmm, Pearson symbol hP6, CaCu(5) structure type) has been redetermined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. In contrast to previous determinations based on X-ray powder data [Nowotny (1942). Z. Metallkd.34, 247-253; de Negri et al. (2008).(More)
Binary and multicomponent intermetallic compounds based on lithium and p-elements of Groups III-V of the Periodic Table are useful as modern electrode materials in lithium-ion batteries. However, the interactions between the components in the Li-Ge-B ternary system have not been reported. The structure of tetralithium digermanium boride, Li4Ge2B, exhibits a(More)
