Cover Picture: Crystal Structure and Magnetic Properties of Bi(Bi9)[NbCl6]3, a New Member of the Structure Family Bi(Bi9)[MX6]3, and the Crystal Structure of Bi8[Ta2O2Br7]2 (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 10/2004)

2004_10/2004The cover picture shows the characteristic crystal form of elemental bismuth in the background and a perspective view of the crystal structure Bi(Bi9)[NbCl6]3 containing three-capped trigonal prismatic Bi95+ clusters. The Bi+ cations in the channels made up of the octahedral halometalate anions are disordered and can be treated in different ways in the crystallographic description. A remarkable feature of the compound is the paramagnetic behaviour, which shows the presence of Nb in the less common oxidation state +IV. Details are discussed in the article by J. Beck and T. Hilbert on p. 2019 ff.
