Abstract :
The crystal structures of the two new synthetic compounds Co2TeO3Cl2 and Co2TeO3Br2 are described together with their magnetic properties. Co2TeO3Cl2 crystallize in the monoclinic space group P21/m with unit cell parameters a=5.0472(6) Å, b=6.6325(9) Å, c=8.3452(10) Å, β=105.43(1)°, Z=2. Co2TeO3Br2 crystallize in the orthorhombic space group Pccn with unit cell parameters a=10.5180(7) Å, b=15.8629(9) Å, c=7.7732(5) Å, Z=8. The crystal structures were solved from single crystal data, R=0.0328 and 0.0412, respectively. Both compounds are layered with only weak interactions in between the layers. The compound Co2TeO3Cl2 has [CoO4Cl2] and [CoO3Cl3] octahedra while Co2TeO3Br2 has [CoO2Br2] tetrahedra and [CoO4Br2] octahedra. The Te(IV) atoms are tetrahedrally [TeO3E] coordinated in both compounds taking the 5s2 lone electron pair E into account. The magnetic properties of the compounds are characterized predominantly by long-range antiferromagnetic ordering below 30 K.
