|Abstract:||The compounds CeGa2, Ce0.82Mg0.50Ga1.68, Eu(Mg/Li)(x)Ga2-x (0 <= x <= 0.4) and Eu(Mg/Li)(x)Ga4-x(0 <= x <= 0.73) were synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction. CeGa2 and Ce0.82Mg0.50Ga1.68 crystallize in the AlB2 structure type with P6/mmm space group. The structure is composed of infinite arrays of planar hexagonal Ga atoms stacked along the  direction and the Ce atoms are sandwiched between them. Eu(Mg/Li)(x)Ga2-x (0 <= x <= 0.4) crystallize in the KHg2 structure type with Imma space group and consists of the hexagonal rings of M (Li/Mg + Ga) atoms connected along the  plane forming a puckered network with voids occupied by two Eu atoms. The Eu(Mg/Li)(x)Ga4-x (0 <= x <= 0.73) compounds crystallize in the BaAl4 structure type having I4/mmm space group. In Eu(Mg/Li)(x)Ga4-x, the Eu atom occupies the edge and the body centered position of the unit cell while the Ga and M (Li/Mg + Ga) atoms forms a 3D polyanionic framework. Magnetic susceptibility of CeGa2, EuGa2, EuGa4 and their corresponding Li/Mg analogs are discussed. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.|
