Title: Construction of a double-layered tetrahedral network within a perovskite host: Two-step route to the alkali-metal-halide layered perovskite (Li {sub x} Cl)LaNb{sub 2}O{sub 7}

Abstract

A two-step topotactic route is used to construct lithium halide layers within a perovskite host. Initially RbLaNb{sub 2}O{sub 7} is converted to (CuCl)LaNb{sub 2}O{sub 7} by ion exchange and then reductive intercalation with n-butyllithium is used to form (Li {sub x} Cl)LaNb{sub 2}O{sub 7}. The copper metal byproduct from the reduction step is removed by treatment with iodine. Rietveld refinement of neutron powder diffraction data revealed that an alkali-halide double layer with LiO{sub 2}Cl{sub 2} tetrahedra forms between the perovskite slabs. Compositional studies indicate that the range for x in (Li {sub x} Cl)LaNb{sub 2}O{sub 7} is 2{<=}x<4, which appears consistent with the neutron data where only one lithium site was found in the structure. - Graphical abstract: Alkali-halide layers can be constructed within a layered perovskite host via a two-step topochemical process.
