Abstract

Co3B7O13Br (Co-Br) is orthorhombic, space group Pca21, with a 8.5614(2), b 8.5657(2), and c 12.1196(3) .ANG.; Z = 4, dc = 4.04, R = 7.0 and Rw = 5.4% for 2824 reflections. Ni3B7O13Cl (Ni-Cl) is orthorhombic, space group Pca21, with a 8.5105(4), b 8.4984(4), and c 12.0324(5) .ANG.; Z = 4, dc = 2.78, R = 3.5 and Rw = 3.1% for 2082 reflections. At. coordinates are given. The metal surroundings of Co-Br and Ni-Cl were analyzed and show 2 metal sites (Co2, Co3; Ni2, Ni3) with chem. similar environments and 1 metal site (Co1; Ni1) with a different environment. Six B atoms have a tetrahedral or slightly distorted tetrahedral coordination, whereas 1 B atom (B4) has triangular surroundings in both compds.
