Title: Syntheses, Raman spectroscopy and crystal structures of alkali hexafluoridorhenates(IV) revisited

Abstract

The A 2[ReF 6] (A = K, Rb and Cs) salts are isotypic and crystallize in the trigonal space group type P$$\bar{3}$$m1, adopting the K 2[GeF 6] structure type. Common to all A 2[ReF 6] structures are slightly distorted octa­hedral [ReF 6] 2- anions with an average Re—F bond length of 1.951 (8) Å. In these salts, symmetry lowering on the local [ReF 6] 2- anions from O h (free anion) to D 3d (solid-state structure) occur. The distortions of the [ReF 6] 2- anions, as observed in their Raman spectra, are correlated to the size of the counter-cations.
