Abstract

K4Cu8Te11 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent K1+ sites. In the first K1+ site, K1+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to eight Te+1.45- atoms. There are a spread of K–Te bond distances ranging from 3.66–4.06 Å. In the second K1+ site, K1+ is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to ten Te+1.45- atoms. There are a spread of K–Te bond distances ranging from 3.39–4.02 Å. In the third K1+ site, K1+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Te+1.45- atoms. There are a spread of K–Te bond distances ranging from 3.61–3.95 Å. In the fourth K1+ site, K1+ is bonded to twelve Te+1.45- atoms to form KTe12 cuboctahedra that share corners with fourteen CuTe4 tetrahedra, edges with three equivalent KTe12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eight CuTe4 tetrahedra.

In the third Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to five K1+ and two equivalent Cu+1.50+ atoms. In the fourth Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to two equivalent K1+, four Cu+1.50+, and one Te+1.45- atom. In the fifth Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to three K1+, two Cu+1.50+, and one Te+1.45- atom. The Te–Te bond length is 2.86 Å. In the sixth Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded to three equivalent K1+ and four Cu+1.50+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing TeK3Cu4 pentagonal bipyramids. In the seventh Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to four K1+, two equivalent Cu+1.50+, and one Te+1.45- atom. The Te–Te bond length is 2.91 Å. In the eighth Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to four K1+, two Cu+1.50+, and one Te+1.45- atom. The Te–Te bond length is 2.88 Å. In the ninth Te+1.45- site, Te+1.45- is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to four K1+ and four equivalent Cu+1.50+ atoms.« less
