From order to disorder and back: A combined approach of electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction was applied for the characterization of highly complex chalcogenide phases. In the course of observations, a new structural variant of (NH4)2In12Se19 was produced in situ, and the mechanism of structure formation was analyzed by electron microscopy.
