Abstract

The new compounds RE4O4[AsO4]Cl (RE = La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd) were synthesised by solid state reaction via a salt flux route and investigated by HRTEM, SAED, and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The samples crystallise with a tetragonal cell, space group P42/mnm and Z = 2. Their crystal structure consists of an alternation of [RE 4O4]4+ and [ClAsO4]4- layers. The [RE4O4]4+ layer contains ORE 4/4 tetrahedra which share common edges. The anions AsO 4 3- and Cl- are located between these layers in disordered manner. SAED and HRTEM experiments confirmed this structural model and enabled us to propose an ordered model for the [ClAsO4] 4- layers.
