Abstract

The structure of (formula presented) has been experimentally determined. The approach of atomic pair distribution function analysis was used because of the lack of well-defined Bragg peaks due to the short structural coherence (50 Å) in this intercalation compound. The reduction of Mo by Li results in Mo-Mo bonding with the formation of chains of distorted (formula presented) octahedra. Using refined structural parameters the electronic band structure for this material has been calculated and is in good agreement with observed material properties.
