The intermetallic phase GdCo1-xGa3Ge exhibits a charge density wave distortion in the square nets of Ga which was elucidated with superspace crystallography. The distortion results in parallel infinite chains and ribbons with substantial interchain hypervalent interactions very similar to those observed in the charge density waves of RETe3 (RE = rare earth element).
