Other compounds with this structure

  • Pt2Si3, InAu2Ga2, and Au4In3Sn3

  • We were unable to obtain a copy of (Schubert, 1949), and so we use the structural parameters given by (Pearson, 1958), using (Wood, 1947) to convert the $kX$ units used by Pearson into Ångström units.

Hexagonal primitive vectors:

\[ \begin{array}{ccc} \mathbf{a}_1 & = & \frac12 \, a \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} - \frac{\sqrt3}2 \, a \, \mathbf{\hat{y}} \\ \mathbf{a}_2 & = & \frac12 \, a \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} + \frac{\sqrt3}2 \, a \, \mathbf{\hat{y}} \\ \mathbf{a}_3 & = & c \, \mathbf{\hat{z}} \\ \end{array} \]
