Dynamic enhancement of cation migration in a Zintl alloy by polyanion rotation


ZINTL alloys are compounds of an alkali metal A with a polyvalent metal M in which transfer of an electron from A to M leads to bonding behaviour in the M− ions typical of elements one column to the right in the Periodic Table. For example, ASn and APb contain tetrahedral M4−4 polyanions in both the crystalline and liquid phases1 whereas AA1 alloys… (More)
