Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


CsZrUTe5 is isostructural with CsTiUTe5. In the asymmetric unit, the site symmetries of the Cs, U, Zr, Te1, Te2 and Te3 atoms are mm2, mm2, .2/m., m.., .2. and mm2, respectively. CsZrUTe5 has a layered structure that contains UTe8 bicapped trigonal prisms sharing a common edge with ZrTe6 octahedra. Cs cations separate the layers. The structure contains an infinite linear Te-Te chain, with Te atoms separated by 3.1551(4).
