Abstract

THE higher aluminium borides AlB10, AlB12 and their polymorphs are distinct from other higher metal borides in that the exact stoichiometric chemical formulae of the former are accompanied by an anomalous number of formula units per crystallographic unit cell. Despite extensive efforts, the crystal structure of none of the higher aluminium borides has so far been solved.
