    Abstract

    Single crystals of nonadecabarium nonaindium nonanitride, Ba 19In9N9, were synthesized by the Na flux method under N2 pressure. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/m, with Z = 2. Polyanionic indium clusters [In5] 5- and [In8]12- are surrounded by Ba 2+ cations and are located in a flat cage built of linked nitrogen-centred NBa6 octahedra. The structural formula is expressed as (Ba38N18)[In5]2[In8].
