Crystal structure of Mo5Si3C


Figure 23: Crystal structure of Mo5Si3C (space group P63/mcm). At the left-hand part of the drawing a projection of the structure along the hexagonal z axis is presented. The carbon atoms (not shown) are situated inside the emphasized Mo6 octahedra. These share faces, thus forming infinite chains, which extend along the hexagonal axis. The near-neighbor coordinations of all atoms are presented at the right-hand side of the figure
