Abstract

A crystalline three-dimensional (3D) quaternary chalcohalide, Hg7InS6Cl5 (1), has been synthesized through a solid-state reaction under medium temperature. It is the first example in the family of the Hg-IIIA-Q-X (Q = S, Se, Te; X = F, Cl, Br, I) systems. Compound 1 features a 3D network and has an optical band gap of 2.54 eV. © 2012 American Chemical Society.
