Potassium gadolinium polyphosphate, KGd(PO3)4
Abstract:Potassium gadolinium polyphosphate, KGd(PO3)4, was synthesized using the flux method. The atomic arrangement consists of an infinite long-chain polyphosphate organization. Two types of chains, with a period of eight PO4 tetrahedra, run along the  direction. The Gd atoms have an eightfold coordination, while the K atoms have nine O-atom neighbours.
