Cerium and molten potassium selenide flux provide access to KCeSe4. The structure of this novel lanthanide polychalcogenide is related to the CuAl2 structure, and Ce and Se form anionic layers with K+ ions in the cavities. Each Ce3+ ion is surrounded by eight Se 22− units in a square antiprismatic arrangement (structure shown on the right). (Figure Presented.)
