2014_30/2014New Lithium-Containing Pnictides with 1-D Infinite Chains of Supertetrahedral Clusters: Synthesis, Crystal and Electronic Structure of Ba4Li2Cd3Pn6 (Pn = P, As and Sb) (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 30/2014)

The cover picture shows the crystal structure of Ba4Li2Cd3Pn6 (Pn = P, As, Sb), which is based on infinite chains of supertetrahedral T2 clusters. Electronic structure calculations suggest that these materials are potential candidates for thermoelectric applications. The structural similarities between these novel compounds and another set of compounds, exemplified by the La4Mg5Ge6 structure, are also described. Details are discussed in the article by S. Bobev et al. on p. 5113 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
