Abstract

LnTe3 (Ln = La, Ho) single crystals are produced by the interaction of elementary compounds in an alkali halide melt. The structures of the obtained compounds are determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. It is found that LaTe3 crystallizes in the space group Ama2 with the following parameters: a = 4.4195(2) Å, b = 26.2644(11) Å, c = 4.4028(2) Å. As for HoTe3, the space group Cmcm with the following parameters a = 4.2994(18) Å, b = 25.393(10) Å, c = 4.3021(17) Å is determined.
