Title: The crystal and electronic structures of the Li{sub 2-x}Ag{sub 1+x}In{sub 3} (x=0.05) indide

Abstract

The crystal structure of Li{sub 2-x}Ag{sub 1+x}In{sub 3} (x=0.05) has been determined on a single crystal synthesized from the elements in a tantalum crucible. The compound crystallizes in orthorhombic space group Pmma (a=9.325 (3) A, b=3.198 (1) A, c=8.043 (3) A at 296 K) with 12 atoms per unit cell and represents a new structure type. The structure of Li{sub 2-x}Ag{sub 1+x}In{sub 3} is closely related to the LaCoAl{sub 4} structure and belongs to the structural family, the representative members of which may be derived from the hexagonal AlB{sub 2} structure type by a combination of internal deformation and substitution. The strong In-In interaction and close to zero electrons concentration around Li and Ag atoms, calculated by LTMO, allow to suggest high mobility of lithium atoms located within the channels formed by the strongly waved [-In-In-] polyanionic chains. - Graphical abstract: The crystal structure of Li{sub 2-x}Ag{sub 1+x}In{sub 3} (x=0.05) indide.

  • Here in this article, we investigated the dielectric properties of (In + Nb) co-doped rutile TiO 2 single crystal and polycrystalline ceramics. Both of them showed colossal, up to 10 4, dielectric permittivity at room temperature. The single crystal sample showed one dielectric relaxation process with a large dielectric loss. The voltage-dependence of dielectric permittivity and the impedance spectrum suggest that the high dielectric permittivity of single crystal originated from the surface barrier layer capacitor (SBLC). The impedance spectroscopy at different temperature confirmed that the (In+Nb) co-doped rutile TiO 2 polycrystalline ceramic had semiconductor grains and insulating grain boundaries, andmore » that the activation energies were calculated to be 0.052 eV and 0.35 eV for grain and grain boundary, respectively. The dielectric behavior and impedance spectrum of the polycrystalline ceramic sample indicated that the internal barrier layer capacitor (IBLC) mode made a major contribution to the high ceramic dielectric permittivity, instead of the electron-pinned defect-dipoles.« less
  • The authors have recently undertaken an investigation of the spectroscopic, magnetic, photophysical, and photochemical properties of a large number of derivatives of the M/sub 2/X/sub 4/L/sub 4/ type (M = Mo, W; X = Cl, Br, I; L = uncharged sigma-donor ligand), which form one of the largest subclasses of quadruply bonded dimers. One of the more striking findings of these studies is that parameters such as (delta ..-->.. delta*) transition energies, electronic absorption and emission band shapes and intensities, and the rates of radiative and nonradiative excited state decay, which are properties associated with the formally metal-metal-localized manifold ofmore » electronic states, display a marked sensitivity to the nature of ligands X and L. In order to determine whether this ligand dependence is also reflected in the ground-state properties of these complexes, as well as to provide a structural benchmark for analyzing ligand perturbations of their excited states, they determined the crystal structures of two such derivatives, Mo/sub 2/Br/sub 4/(PMe/sub 3/)/sub 4/ and Mo/sub 2/I/sub 4/(PMe/sub 3/)/sub 4/, and the vibrational and electronic spectra of a series of M/sub 2/X/sub 4/L/sub 4/ complexes. These results are reported herein, along with a general interpretation of the ligand sensitivity of the energies and intensities of the (delta ..-->.. delta*) transitions of quadruply bonded dimers.« less
  • A new class of porphyrins in which intervening ethynyl moieties connect aryl groups to the porphyrin 5- and 15-positions is described. The synthesis and optical spectroscopy of five new compounds are reported. The X-ray structure of one of these complexes, [5,15-bis[(4`-fluorophenyl)ethynyl]-10,20-diphenyl porphinato]zinc (II), is usual in that it shows the arylethynyl-phenyl rings to be coplanar with the porphyrin macrocycle. This arrangement of aryl rings with respect to the porphyrin macrocycle underscores the fact that the steric barrier to rotation between the porphyrin and arylethynyl-phenyl aromatic systems has been removed and highlights the enhanced {pi}-conjugative interactions responsible for the unusual electronicmore » characteristics of these molecules. Electronic spectroscopy and electrochemistry of these systems evince the ability of this new porphyrin structural motif to modulate extensively chromophore electronic structure. ZINDO-determined (INDO-1 semiempirical parameters; Cl level = 20) frontier orbital energies for the [5,15-bis[(aryl)ethynyl]-10, 20-diphenylporphinato]zinc(II) complexes demonstrate that these properties derive from energetic differences between the porphyrin HOMO and HOMO-1 and a substantial splitting of the formerly degenerate porphyrin LUMO. 24 refs., 8 figs., 7 tabs.« less
  • The syntheses and X-ray crystal structures of potassium cryptate (K(K222))/sup +/ salts of the (chlorotetraphenyl-porphinato)manganese(II) and (peroxotetraphenylporphinato)manganese(III) anions are reported. The complexes are prepared in THF by reaction of Mn/sup II/TPP with Cl/sup -/ and O/sub 2//sup -/, respectively. Both complexes crystallize in the space group P2/sub 1//c with four formula units per unit cell. The unit cell of the chloride complex has dimensions a = 12.834 A, b = 18.999 A, c = 23.313 A, ..beta.. = 99.02 at 133 K. The manganese is pentacoordinate, bonded to four pyrrole nitrogens and a chloride ion. The manganese atom is displacedmore » 0.641 A from the least-squares plan based on the four pyrrole nitrogen atoms in the direction of the chloride ligand. The unit cell of the manganese(III)-peroxo complex has dimensions a = 12.895 A, b = 18.836 A, c = 23.045 A, ..beta.. = 99.17 at 133 K. The manganese is bonded to four pyrrole nitrogens and the bidentate peroxo ligand. The manganese lies 0.764 A above the least-squares plane based on the pyrrole nitrogens toward the peroxo ligand. The O-O bond distance is 1.421 A, and the Mn-O distances are 1.901 and 1.888 A. The peroxo ligand is bound side-on to the manganese, eclipsing two of the manganese-pyrrole nitrogen bonds.« less
