Abstract

The noncentrosymmetric niobium and tantalum selenoarsenates, A 3Nb2AsSe11 (A=K, Rb, Cs) and K 3Ta2AsSe11, were synthesized in a polyselenoarsenate flux. All compounds crystallize in the polar monoclinic space group Cc. The structures are comprised of the same type of infinite chain anions, [M2Se2(Se2)3(AsSe 3)]3- (M=Nb, Ta) separated by alkali metal cations. The As3+ centers with nonbonded electron pairs play an important role in stabilizing the noncentrosymmetric structures. UV-Vis spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and differential thermal analysis data are reported. The energy gaps of these compounds vary between 1.35 and 1.53eV.
