Abstract

CuAl2O4 is Spinel-like structured and crystallizes in the trigonal R3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are eight inequivalent Cu2+ sites. In the first Cu2+ site, Cu2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form CuO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent CuO6 octahedra and corners with nine AlO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 56–63°. There is three shorter (1.95 Å) and one longer (1.97 Å) Cu–O bond length. In the second Cu2+ site, Cu2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form CuO6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent CuO4 tetrahedra, corners with three equivalent AlO4 tetrahedra, and edges with six AlO6 octahedra. There are three shorter (2.00 Å) and three longer (2.10 Å) Cu–O bond lengths. In the third Cu2+ site, Cu2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form CuO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent CuO6 octahedra and corners with nine AlO6 octahedra.
