Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Like zeolites, K6Sn[Zn 4Sn4S17] (see structure) has remarkable ion-exchange properties and forms CsK5Sn[Zn4Sn 4S17] and RbK5Sn[Zn4Sn 4S17] in the presence of the Cs+ and Rb + ions, respectively. These compounds have an open framework comprising [Zn4Sn4S17]10- clusters linked by Sn4+ centers and are remarkably stable. One-fifth of the K+ ions play an important templating role in stabilizing the framework. Zn blue, Sn red, S yellow, K orange.
