Remarkable rare-earth metal silicide oxides with planar Si6 rings.


New rare-earth silicide oxides, La10Si8O3 (1) and Ce10Si8O3 (2), were synthesized through high-temperature reactions of the pure elements under controlled oxygen atmosphere conditions. The remarkable silicides crystallize in a unique crystal structure (space group P6/mmm; a = 10.975(3) A (La) and 10.844(1) A (Ce); c = 4.680(1) A (La) and 4.561(1) A (Ce… (More)
