Abstract

K3AlAs2 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are twelve inequivalent K1+ sites. In the first K1+ site, K1+ is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to two K1+ and six As3- atoms. There are one shorter (3.24 Å) and one longer (3.46 Å) K–K bond lengths.

In the second Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to four As3- atoms to form AlAs4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one KKAs4 trigonal pyramid, edges with two AlAs4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one KKAs4 trigonal pyramid. There are a spread of Al–As bond distances ranging from 2.55–2.61 Å. In the third Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three As3- atoms. There are a spread of Al–As bond distances ranging from 2.37–2.49 Å. In the fourth Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three As3- atoms. There are a spread of Al–As bond distances ranging from 2.36–2.48 Å. There are eight inequivalent As3- sites. In the first As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to seven K1+ and two Al3+ atoms. In the second As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to seven K1+ and two equivalent Al3+ atoms. In the third As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to seven K1+ and two Al3+ atoms. In the fourth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to seven K1+ and two equivalent Al3+ atoms. In the fifth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to six K1+ and one Al3+ atom. In the sixth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to seven K1+ and one Al3+ atom. In the seventh As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to five K1+ and two Al3+ atoms.
