CsGaS2-mC64 was obtained by reaction of CsN3 with stoichiometric amounts of Ga2S3 and S at elevated temperatures. The crystal structure of the air- and moisture stable compound was determined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. The colourless solid crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c (no. 15) with the lattice parameters a = 10.5718(6) A, b = 10.5708(6) A, c = 16.0847(8) A, β = 99.445(4)°, V = 1773.1(2) A3, and Z = 16. The compound crystallizes in the TlGaSe2 structure type… CONTINUE READING
