Title: Comparative high-pressure study and chemical bonding analysis of Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 14} and isostructural Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 12}Br{sub 2}

Abstract

The binary compound Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 14} was synthesized from the elements. The compound is isostructural with Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 12}Br{sub 2}, crystallizes with the orthorhombic space group Fddd (no. 70) and lattice parameters a=6.8959(15) A, b=17.379(3) A, c=31.758(6) A. The crystal structure consists of a three-dimensional (3D) framework of edge-sharing cubes and square antiprisms (RhBi{sub 8/2}). It is closely related to the intermetallic compound RhBi{sub 4}, in which two Y-like frameworks of antiprisms interpenetrate. In Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 14} and Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 12}Br{sub 2}, additional bismuth and bromine anions, respectively, fill the channels of the 3D polyhedral framework formed by covalently bonded rhodium and bismuth atoms. High-pressure X-ray powder diffraction data from synchrotron measurements of Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 14} and Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 12}Br{sub 2} indicate a high stability of both compounds in the investigated range from ambient pressure to ca. 30 GPa at ambient temperature. - Graphical abstract: Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 14} isostructural with Rh{sub 3}Bi{sub 12}Br{sub 2} consists of a 3D framework of edge-sharing cubes and square antiprisms.
