Abstract

Rb2Gd4Cu4S9 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Rb1+ sites. In the first Rb1+ site, Rb1+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of Rb–S bond distances ranging from 3.25–3.86 Å. In the second Rb1+ site, Rb1+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of Rb–S bond distances ranging from 3.25–3.90 Å. There are four inequivalent Gd3+ sites. In the first Gd3+ site, Gd3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form GdS6 octahedra that share corners with three GdS6 octahedra, a cornercorner with one CuS4 tetrahedra, edges with five GdS6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent CuS4 tetrahedra.
