Synthesis and Reactivity in Inorganic Metal-Organic and Nano-Metal Chemistry (Impact Factor: 0.53). 04/2009; 39(4):209-210. DOI: 10.1080/15533170902858211


The pale yellow air-stable compound InTeO3Br could be obtained by the reaction of In, TeO2, Te and Br2. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system (a=8.2596 (4) Å, b = 6.8752(3) Å, c = 7.1394 (3) Å, β = 103.121 (2)^, Z = 4, space group = P21/c),[1] isotypic to the corresponding chloride compound, InTeO3Cl.[2] The compound forms a layered structure and these layers are separated by van der Waal's gaps. InO4Br2 octahedra linked with the TeO3 by sharing common corners are the typical structural building blocks for the title compound.
