Abstract

Single crystals of Zn3.77V1.54Mo1.46O12 were grown in a ZnO/V2O5/MoO3 melt. The colorless needles were determined to be orthorhombic, space group P212121 (No. 19), a=5.048 (4) Å, b=10.400 (2) Å, c=17.560 (7) Å, V=921.9(6) Å3, and Z=4. One type of zinc cation in the structure exhibits trigonal prismatic coordination, and relatively large distortions of the Zn-O bond lengths in the trigonal prisms reduce the symmetry from Pnma (centrosymmetric) to P212121 (acentric).
