Abstract New ternary silicides RE 2 RhSi 3 (RE = Y, La, Ce, Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er) have been prepared. They crystallize with a hexagonal symmetry structure which is derived from the AlB 2 -type. Si and Rh atoms are inside RE 6 distorted trigonal prisms and are ordered in a two dimensional sublattice perpendicular to the c axis. The a and c parameters are approximately twice those of the corresponding disilicides RESi 2 . La 2 RhSi 3 and Y 2 RhSi 3 are not superconducting down to 1.6 K. Nd… CONTINUE READING
