Title: High-pressure high-temperature synthesis and crystal structure of the isotypic rare earth (RE)-thioborate-sulfides RE{sub 9}[BS{sub 3}]{sub 2}[BS{sub 4}]{sub 3}S{sub 3}, (RE=Dy-Lu)

Abstract

Application of high-pressure high-temperature conditions (3.5 GPa at 1673 K for 5 h) to mixtures of the elements (RE:B:S=1:3:6) yielded crystalline samples of the isotypic rare earth-thioborate-sulfides RE{sub 9}[BS{sub 3}]{sub 2}[BS{sub 4}]{sub 3}S{sub 3}, (RE=Dy-Lu), which crystallize in space group P6{sub 3} (Z=2/3) and adopt the Ce{sub 6}Al{sub 3.33}S{sub 14} structure type. The crystal structures were refined from X-ray powder diffraction data by applying the Rietveld method.
