Sr[B(OH)4](IO3) and Li4Sr5[B12O22(OH)4](IO3)2: two unprecedented metal borate-iodates showing a subtle balance of enlarged band gap and birefringence

Abstract

Two unprecedented metal borate-iodates, Sr[B(OH)4](IO3) (SBIO) and Li4Sr5[B12O22(OH)4](IO3)2 (LSBIO), were synthesized via the strategy of introducing (IO3) into borates. In particular, the LSBIO possessed a new B12O26 fundamental building block (FBB). The two compounds integrated the advantages of both pure iodates and borates, showing enlarged band gaps and birefringence. Moreover, diverse B–O FBBs achieved the modulation of birefringence. This work reported the first two examples of borate-iodates.
