Crystal Growth of Novel Lanthanide-Containing Platinates K4[Ln6Pt2O15] (Ln = La, Pr, Nd, Sm) with a Unique Framework Structure
Crystals of a new family of lanthanide-containing platinum oxides with a unique framework structure were grown out of molten hydroxide fluxes. The structure consists of a crystallographically well-behaved [Ln6Pt2O15]4− framework permeated by channels filled with disordered atoms along the  and equivalent directions. Open-channel structures are rare in oxides and apparently unknown in platinate chemistry.
