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.
