Abstract

original image

Sulfates united: The unique tetrasulfate S4O132− anion was observed in the structure of (NO2)2[S4O13] that forms in the reaction of N2O5 with SO3. Theoretical investigations show that the anion is a stable member of the polysulfate series [SnO3n+1]2−, which was investigated up to n=11.
