Abstract

Zn4Ta2O9 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are five inequivalent Ta5+ sites. In the first Ta5+ site, Ta5+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form TaO6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent TaO6 octahedra and corners with six ZnO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 38°. There are a spread of Ta–O bond distances ranging from 1.96–2.03 Å. In the second Ta5+ site, Ta5+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form TaO6 octahedra that share corners with two TaO6 octahedra, corners with three ZnO4 tetrahedra, a cornercorner with one ZnO5 trigonal bipyramid, and edges with two TaO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 34–38°. There are a spread of Ta–O bond distances ranging from 1.91–2.14 Å.
