Abstract

Two tellurostannates, [Mn(en)3]2(Sn2Te6) (I) and [Zn(en)3]2(Sn2Te6) (II), have been synthesized via low temperature solvothermal reactions. Both are Zintl compounds and contain (Sn2Te6)4- dimeric units and metal coordination complex cations. Compounds I and II were prepared at temperatures between 170 and 180°C using ethylenediamine as solvent. [Mn(en)3]2(Sn2Te6) crystallizes in orthorhombic crystal system, space group Pbca (No. 61), with a = 15.797(2), b = 12.640(2), c = 20.175(2) Å, Z = 4. [Zn(en)3]2(Sn2Te6) belongs to monoclinic system, space group P2I/n (No. 14) with a = 9.048(2), b = 22.300(6), c = 9.360(3) Å, Z = 4. Temperature dependent susceptibility measurements and isothermal magnetization on I show a typical paramagnetic behavior and a magnetic moment of μ = 3.56 μB was calculated for this compound.
