Abstract

La3Cu2VO9 crystallizes in a heretofore unknown superstructural variation of the rare-earth hexagonal structure (P63/mmc) for ABO3 stoichiometries as characterized by X-ray, neutron and electron diffraction. The alternating hexagonal layers of LaO6/3 and (Cu/V)O3/3 resemble those of YA1O3, except that the copper and vanadium order to create an a√13 × a√13 × c supercell with P63/m symmetry. The B-cation coordination environments accommodate copper and vanadium in a two to one molar ratio. The CuII lattice consists of nine atom clusters of triangles in triangles similar to a kagomé lattice. The phase is paramagnetic from 5 to 370 K with three temperature regimes that correspond closely to 1/9, 4/9, and 9/9 spins per copper.
