Abstract

A quaternary chalcogenide K2MnSnS4, which consists of [M4S10]8- tetrameric clusters linked by sharing their terminal sulfur atoms to form a quasi-two-dimensional structure, exhibits magnetic properties which can be explained by a model containing no exchange coupling between neighboring clusters. To explain this result we calculated the Coulomb energy of different configurations of Mn2+ and Sn4+ ions. These calculations clearly showed that the lowest energy configurations occurred when the distribution of Mn2+XSn4+ ions in each cluster was such that no Mn2+ was magnetically coupled to a Mn2+ in an adjacent cluster through a sulfur bond, in agreement with the magnetic analysis.
