Title: Hydrogen in polar intermetallics: Syntheses and structures of the ternary Ca{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}D{sub 0.93}, Yb{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub x}, and Sm{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub a}pprox{sub 1} by powder neutron or single crystal X-ray diffraction

Abstract

The syntheses of the title compounds are described in detail. Structural characterizations from refinements of single crystal X-ray diffraction data for Yb{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub x} and Sm{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub a}pprox{sub 1} and of powder neutron diffraction data for Ca{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}D{sub 0.93(3)} are reported. These confirm that all three crystallize with the heavy atom structure type of beta-Yb{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}, and the third gives the first proof that the deuterium lies in the center of nominal calcium tetrahedra, isostructural with the Ca{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}F-type structure. These Ca and Yb phases are particularly stable with respect to dissociation to Mn{sub 5}Si{sub 3}-type product plus H{sub 2}. Some contradictions in the literature regarding Yb{sub 5}Sb{sub 3} and Yb{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}H{sub x} phases are considered in terms of adventitious hydrogen impurities that are generated during reactions in fused silica containers at elevated temperatures. - Graphical abstract: The structure of Ca{sub 5}Bi{sub 3}H{sub 0.93} occurs in the novel Ca{sub 5}Sb{sub 3}F structure type with D centered in the shaded calcium tetrahedra.
