[(η2-(Si/Ge)4)Zn(η2-(Si/Ge)4)]6− – novel Zintl clusters with mixed Si/Ge tetrahedra bridged by a Zn atom

Author affiliations

Abstract

The solubility of the ternary Zintl phase K12Si17−xGex (x = 5), containing mixed group 14 element clusters, was investigated. Novel dimeric tetrahedral Zintl clusters [(η2-E4)Zn(η2-E4)]6− with mixed site occupation (E = Si/Ge) were obtained through reaction with (C6H6)2Zn in ammonia solutions and investigated by means of X-ray single crystal diffraction.
