Title: An organically templated yttrium fluoride with a 'Super-Diamond' structure

Abstract

An organically templated yttrium fluoride has been prepared hydrothermally and characterised by X-ray powder diffraction. The crystal structure of [C{sub 3}N{sub 2}H{sub 12}]{sub 0.5}[Y{sub 3}F{sub 10}] may be regarded as a 'Super-Diamond' framework, space group Fd3-bar m, a=15.4817(1)A, where each carbon atom site of the diamond structure is replaced by a polyhedral [Y{sub 6}F{sub 8}F{sub 24/2}]{sup 2-} unit. The basic framework type is isostructural with the known phase (H{sub 3}O)[Yb{sub 3}F{sub 10}].H{sub 2}O. The novelty in the present case lies in the use of the organic structure-directing agent 1,3-diaminopropane.
