The formation and crystal chemistry of ternary clathrates in the Ba-Cu-Si
system were investigated on a series of compounds Ba8CuxSi46 x (3 £ x £ 8).
The phase diagram around the clathrate phase was constructed at 800 C,
revealing a homogeneity range from Ba8Cu3.4Si42.6 to Ba8Cu4.8Si41.2. Structural
investigations confirmed that the clathrates in this system crystallize
with cubic primitive symmetry, in the type I clathrate structure (space group
Pm 3n). Single-crystal x-ray diffraction indicates that the Cu atoms partially
substitute for Si atoms on the 6d site; no vacancies are observed.
Key words: Clathrate, phase equilibria, crystal chemistry
