The structure of a range of solid solutions LixCu0.07Ti2.05S4, formed by intercalating lithium into the host compound Cu0.07Ti2.05S4, is reported. Derived from the structure of spinel and with the same space group Fd3m, it consists of cubic close packed sulphur with titanium ions in octahedral, 16(d), sites and both titanium and lithium ions in octahedral, 16(c), sites. The Cu+ ions are located in the 8(a) tetrahedral sites. The structure is contrasted with that of LixCu0.07Ti2S4 which does not contain additional titanium. These materials are of interest as cathodes in lithium batteries. © 1990.
