Abstract

Neutron diffraction was used for the investigation of structure of the ambient temperature alkali metal molten salt system AlCl3/LiSCN. Result showed that Aluminum atom maintained a tetrahedral coordination environment and the SCN- anion coordinates to the Aluminium through the Nitrogen ends. The bond distances obtained from neutron diffraction matched with the calculation results and showed AlCl3NCS- was more stable than its isomer AlCl3SCN-.
