Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Eu3(AsS4)2 and AxEu3-yAs5-zS10 (A = Li, Na) are the members of a new thioarsenate family. They feature As5+ and As3+ centers, respectively. The rhombohedral Eu3(AsS4)2 features a new structure type consisting of eight-coordinate Eu2+ centers and AsS43- anions, whereas the monoclinic AxEu3-yAs5-zS10 (Li0.73Eu3As4.43S10 and Na0.66Eu2.86As4.54S10) belong to the rathite sulfosalt family and are comprised of apparent [As10S20]10- segments linked with Eu2+ ions to give a three-dimensional network. They appear to be alkali-metal-stabilized derivatives of the putative parent phase “Eu3As5S10”.
