(a) Inorganic potassium thioferrate (KFeS2) supercell of the crystal structure using three times the crystallographic c axis. Potassium is shown as purple spheres, iron as red spheres and sulfur as yellow spheres. Sections of five linear FeS2 chains are visible. (b) A five Fe section of a single thioferrate chain, the proposed Fe–S component of IssA.
