ScMO(BO3) (M = Ca and Cd): new Sc-based oxyborates featuring interesting edge-sharing sandwich-like chains and UV cut-off edges

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two new isostructural rare-earth oxyborates ScMO(BO3) (M = Ca and Cd) with a three-dimensional (3D) cationic framework and parallel arranged [BO3] triangles have been synthesized by the flux method. In the 3D cationic framework, an interesting sandwich-like basic building unit (BBU) is constructed by two 1[Ca(1)O4]6− chains and two 1[Sc(1)O4]5− chains. ScMO(BO3) melt incongruently, which shows that title compounds can be grown by the flux method. The UV cut-off edges for ScCaO(BO3) and ScCdO(BO3) are 230 and 249 nm, respectively. In addition, the first-principles calculations are performed to gain further insights into the relationship between the microscopic electronic structures and associated optical properties.
