Abstract

Single crystals of PbLa3O4(VO4) have been synthesized using the flux growth technique and characterized by X-ray diffraction. The crystal structure of the tittle phase was solved by charge flipping and refined to R1 = 0.024 (wR2 = 0.031) for 2777 reflections [I>3σ(I)]. The compound is orthorhombic and crystallized in the space group Cmcm: a = 5.8686(6)Å, b = 17.898(2)Å, c = 7.9190(7)Å, V = 831.8(1)Å3, Z = 4. The structure is built on [PbLa3O4]3+ layers with zig-zag cross-sections, surrounded by isolated (VO4)3- tetrahedra. Its crystal structure shows direct relationship with the isoformular Nd4O4(GeO4) compound which crystallized in the primitive non centrosymmetric Pb21m sub-group. Its stability in temperature and under air was checked as well as optical properties. In a second part, lanthanum was substituted by neodymium giving rise to a paramagnet and f→ f electronic excitations superposed to the broad absorption front below 3.05eV related to the presence of VO4 groups.
