In this communication, the novel nonlinear optical crystal material Cd(4)BiO(BO(3))(3) with 3-chromophore asymmetric structures of CdO(n), BiO(6), and BO(3) groups has been prepared by a flux method, and the single crystal structure has been determined with the space group Cm. It is the largest NLO coefficient for Cd(4)BiO(BO(3))(3) among borate systems,(More)
Two new mid-infrared transparency compounds, centric Ba(2)BiGaS(5) (1) and acentric Ba(2)BiInS(5) (2), were synthesized from a high-temperature solid-state reaction in evacuated closed silica tubes. Their crystal structures were determined by a single crystal X-ray diffraction method at 293 K. The results of crystal structure solution indicate that compound(More)
A new eulytite-like orthophosphate Pb(3)Bi(PO(4))(3), was synthesized by the high temperature solution growth (HTSG) method and characterized by X-ray single crystal diffraction, powder diffraction and electron microscopy. It crystallizes in the acentric cubic space group (I4[combining macron]3d). The pure-phase powders of Pb(3)Bi(PO(4))(3),(More)
A novel copper compound, Cu13(VO4)4(OH)10F4, featuring two types of two-dimensional extended kagome-like and triangular lattices, exhibits long-range antiferromagnetic ordering at ∼3 K, a strong spin-frustration effect with f = 21 and a spin-flop transition at 5 T.
The structural, optical, and electronic properties of four rare-earth bismuth tungstate compounds, LnBiW(2)O(9) (Ln = Ce, Sm, Eu, Er), have been investigated by means of single-crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analyses, and spectral measurements. For some of the compounds, the calculations of energy band structures and density of states have also been(More)
Three new transition metal copper(II) selenites or tellurites, namely, CdCu(SeO3)2 (1), HgCu(SeO3)2 ()2, and Hg2Cu3(Te3O8)2 (3), have been obtained by conventional hydrothermal reactions of CdO (or Hg2Cl2), CuO and SeO2 (or TeO2). Compounds 1 and 2 are isostructural and crystallize in P2(1)/c. Their structures feature a 3D anionic framework of Cu(SeO3)2(2-)(More)
Cu5(VO4)2(OH)4 (turanite) is a layered compound, exhibiting a copper(II) oxide layer in the [0 1 1] plane composed of edge-sharing CuO6 octahedra. Each Cu-O layer is further separated by VO4 tetrahedra. Closer scrutiny found that the copper(II) oxide layer in the compound represents a totally new geometrically-frustrated lattice, a 1/6 depleted triangular(More)
Two novel compounds KZn(4)SbO(7) (1) and KZn(4)Sb(3)O(12) (2) having quasi-white light emission and second-harmonic generation are prepared, and their single-crystal structures are characterized as P6(3)mc and R3 space groups, respectively. The crystal structure transition from high symmetry P6(3)mc of 1 to low symmetry R3 of 2 arises from the large(More)
Three new ternary Ba-Sn-S system compounds, acentric Ba(7)Sn(5)S(15), centric BaSn(2)S(5), and centric Ba(6)Sn(7)S(20) have been designed and synthesized by a conventional high-temperature solid-state reaction method using the evacuated silica tubes. The crystal structure of Ba(7)Sn(5)S(15) shows the coexistence of a SnS(4) tetrahedral and a Sn(2)S(3)(More)
An anionic CoII -MOF, (Me2 NH2 )[Co3 (Me2 NH)3 (OH)(SDBA)3 ] (1) (H2 SDBA=4,4'-sulfonyldibenzoic acid) consisting of highly symmetric CoII3 (μ3 -OH) triangles exhibits spin-canting, spin-flop, and easy-plane magnetic anisotropy. Measurement on a single crystal shows that the ab plane of 1 is the easy magnetization plane. After structural modification(More)
