在陈义刚老师的指导和2017届毕业生邢美玲共同努力下发表了《BeO6 Trigonal Prism with Ultralong Be–O Bonds Observed in a Deep Ultraviolet Optical Crystal Li13BeBe6B9O27》
Beryllium (Be) has high ionization energy (9.32 eV) with the greatest degree of covalency in the group IIA elements, and BeO4 tetrahedra (and BeO3 triangles) with covalent character are generally presented in beryllates. An unprecedented BeO6 trigonal prism with ultralong Be–O bonds as well as a BeO4 common tetrahedron is discovered in a new deep ultraviolet crystal Li13BeBe6B9O27 (LBeBBO) with a ∞2[Be6B9O33] double-layer framework. The BeO6 unit and its bond character are verified by an isostructural crystal Li13(Mg0.45Be0.55)Be6B9O27, while the orbital theory and charge density difference further clarify the ionic character of the BeO6 unit. Phonon dispersion confirms the structural stability of LBeBBO.
