χ-AlNiRu (H-AlNiRu), as determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction, crystallizes in the trigonal space group, P31c (No.159), with unit cell parameters of a = 1.2095(1) nm, c = 2.6879(1) nm, and V = 3.4056(3) nm3, and atoms/cell = 208.6. The refinement converged with R(F) = 0.087 for 3915 observed reflections measured using Mo Kα radiation (λ = 0.071073 nm). The structure of χ-AlNiRu is similar to that of χ-AlPdRe, wherein pseudo-Mackay type clusters are formed by the disordered distribution of Al in the heavy metal framework.
