Abstract

Ni6SnTe2 crystallizes in the tetragonal I4mm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are eight inequivalent Ni sites. In the first Ni site, Ni is bonded to eight Ni and four equivalent Sn atoms to form NiNi8Sn4 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent NiNi8Sn4 cuboctahedra, corners with four equivalent TeNi8 hexagonal bipyramids, edges with eight equivalent NiNi8Sn2Te2 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent SnNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with eight NiNi8Sn4 cuboctahedra, and a faceface with one TeNi8 hexagonal bipyramid. There are four shorter (2.63 Å) and four longer (2.64 Å) Ni–Ni bond lengths. All Ni–Sn bond lengths are 2.68 Å. In the second Ni site, Ni is bonded to eight Ni, two equivalent Sn, and two equivalent Te atoms to form distorted NiNi8Sn2Te2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent NiNi8Sn2Te2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent NiNi8Sn4 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent SnNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent TeNi8 hexagonal bipyramids, faces with two equivalent SnNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with ten NiNi8Sn4 cuboctahedra, and faces with two equivalent TeNi8 hexagonal bipyramids.
