    Abstract

    The crystal structure of tribarium digallium tetranitride is based on a distorted cubic close packing of N atoms with three-quarters of the octahedral holes occupied by Ba atoms and one-quarter of the tetrahedral holes occupied by Ga atoms. The GaN4 tetrahedra share edges and form [GaN4/23-] chains, which are isosteric to the edge-sharing SiS2 tetrahedra in the SiS2 structure.
