Abstract

A new neutral borate species, H 2B 4O 7 (also known as tetraboric acid), with a one-dimensional chain structure, is found in the interlayer spacing in Rb 2[(UO 2) 2B 8O 12F 6]·H 2B 4O 7 (RbUBOF-2) derived from boric acid flux reaction of uranyl(VI) nitrate with RbBF 4. This new form of tetraboric acid possesses a novel borate fundamental building block with the symbol 4Δ: 〈3Δ〉Δ.
