Abstract

Molten Ga is an excellent solvent for the preparation of the polygallide Sm2NiGa12. The compound is metallic and adopts an unusual three-dimensional structure composed of two different kinds of alternating segments. One segment has Ni and Ga atoms and is reminiscent of the KCu4S3 structure type. The other has only Ga atoms and adopts an elaborate Ga network.
