What does it look like?
What is it?
Like Saturday’s structure, today’s is inspired by the space group list project. This is a compound composed of [Me4N][Cu2(NCS)3], which crystallised in spacegroup #101 P42cm. This is a materials with a framework structure with pretty large channels. It forms transparent crystals!
Where did the structure come from?
This structure was discovered by Dilshad and Boller in 2005.
