Abstract

Four cubic compounds are reported that contain the supertetrahedral cluster [M4Sn4S17]10- where M = Mn, Fe, Co, Zn. The cluster features a central quadruply bridging sulfide ion (μ4-S) that holds together four divalent M atoms in a tetrahedral arrangement. This core is capped with four tridentate [SnS4] 4- fragments to complete the structure.
