Abstract

A sample having stoichiometry Li[Ti1.5Ni0.5]O4 has been synthesized to obtain a spinel structure. The resulting crystalline powder revealed a multiphase nature with spinel as the minor phase. The main phase is a new trigonal phase having a = 5.05910 (1), c = 32.5371 (1) Å. The structure has been solved by direct methods working on a three-dimensional set of intensities obtained from a precession electron-diffraction experiment, and refined on synchrotron powder diffraction data in the space group . The model consists of hexagonal layers of edge-sharing octahedra occupied either by the heavy cations Ti and Ni, or preferentially by Li. On the basis of cation-site occupancies the stoichiometry becomes Li4Ti8Ni3O21, which is compatible with the microanalysis results.
