Crystal structures of CrB and FeB


Figure 8: The crystal structures of CrB (space group Cmcm) and FeB (Pnma). Each boron atom in these orthorhombic structures is located in a trigonal prism of metal atoms. Each prism shares two rectangular faces with adjacent prisms. Thus, the boron atoms form infinite zig-zag chains.
