Abstract

Single crystals of Ba14Cu2In4N7, tetradecabarium dicopper tetraindium heptanitride, were synthesized by slow cooling from 1023 K at 7 MPa of N2 using an Na flux. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2/m with Z = 2, and contains 0[CuN2] nitridocuprate units and distorted 0[In4] clusters. One Ba atom, not connected to any N atoms, is surrounded by 12 other Ba atoms in a barium cuboctahedron. The structural formula is expressed as (Ba)Ba27N6[CuN2]4[In4] 2.
