Abstract

Two new main group metal sulphides, [C10N4H 26]0.5[InS2] (1) and [C10N 4H26]0.5[GaS2] (2) have been prepared solvothermally in the presence of 1,4-bis(3-aminopropyl)piperazine and their crystal structures determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Both compounds are isostructural and crystallise in the monoclinic space group P21/n (Z=4), with a=6.5628(5), b=11.2008(9), c=12.6611(9) Å and ß=94.410(4)° (wR=0.035) for compound (1) and a=6.1094(5), b=11.2469(9), c=12.7064(10) Å and ß=94.313(4)° (wR=0.021) for compound (2). The structure of [C10N4H26] 0.5[MS2] (M=In,Ga) consists of one-dimensional [MS 2]- chains which run parallel to the crystallographic a axis and are separated by diprotonated amine molecules. These materials represent the first example of solvothermally prepared one-dimensional gallium and indium sulphides. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
