Abstract

The new compounds A2ZnP2Se6 (A = K, Rb, Cs) were synthesized via molten salt flux syntheses. The crystals feature one-dimensional 1/[ZnP2Se6]2– chains charge balanced by alkali metal ions between the chains. K2ZnP2Se6 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c; cell parameters a = 12.537(3) Å, b = 7.2742(14) Å, c = 14.164(3) Å, β = 109.63(3)°, Z = 4, and V = 1216.7(4) Å3. Rb2ZnP2Se6 and Cs2ZnP2Se6 are isotypic, crystallizing in the triclinic space group P21/c. Rb2ZnP2Se6 has cell parameters of a = 7.4944(15) Å, b = 7.6013(15) Å, c = 12.729(3) Å, α = 96.57(3)°, β = 105.52(3)°, γ = 110.54(3)°, Z = 2, and V = 636.6(2) Å3. Cs2ZnP2Se6 has cell parameters of a = 7.6543(6) Å, b = 7.7006(6) Å, c = 12.7373(11) Å, α = 97.007(7)°, β = 104.335(7)°, γ = 109.241(6)°, Z = 2, and V = 669.54(10) Å3.
