Preparation and double-helix icosahedra structure of δ-Co2Zn15

Boström, M. and Lidin, S. LU (2002) In Journal of Solid State Chemistry 166(1). p.53-57
Abstract

The first known example of a regular face-sharing icosahedra helix is presented in the novel crystal structure of δCo2Zn15, solved and refined from single-crystal X-ray and neutron powder diffraction data. The compound δCo2Zn15 is also the first example of an intermetallic compound crystallizing in the acentric hexagonal space group P62. The parameters from the single crystal refinement are a = 11.292(2) Å, c = 7.750(1) Å, Z = 4, and Rw = 0.025.
