Acta Crystallogr E Crystallogr Commun. 2016 Oct 11;72(Pt 11):1565-1568. eCollection 2016.Single crystals of a new multinary chromium carbide, La21Cr8-2a Al b Ge7-b C12 (henicosa-lanthanum octa-chromium aluminium hexa-germanium dodeca-carbide), were grown from an La-rich self flux and were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The face-centered cubic crystal structure is composed of isolated and geometrically frustrated regular Cr tetra-hedra that are co-centered within regular C octa-hedra. Read More
