Abstract

Four new antimony sulphides, [T(dien)2]Sb6S10·xH2O [T=Ni (1), Co (2) x˜0.45], [Co(en)3]Sb8S13 (3) and [Ni(en)3]Sb12S19 (4), have been synthesised under solvothermal conditions. In compounds (1) - (3), Sb12S228- secondary building units are connected to form layered structures. In (1) and (2), Sb6S102- layers containing Sb16S16 heterorings are separated by [T(dien]2]2+ cations, whilst in (3), Sb8S132- layers contain [Co(en)3]2+ cations within large Sb22S22 pores. Compound (4) adopts a three-dimensional structure in which [Ni(en)3]2+ cations lie within ca. 5 Å wide channels. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
