CASE1: Read the passage given below and answer the following questions 53-55
Early crystallographers had trouble solving the structures of inorganic solids using X-ray
diffraction because some of the mathematical tools for analyzing the data had not yet been
developed. Once a trial structure was proposed, it was relatively easy to calculate the
diffraction pattern, but it was difficult to go the other way (from the diffraction pattern to the
structure) if nothing was known a priori about the arrangement of atoms in the unit cell. It
was important to develop some guidelines for guessing the coordination numbers and
bonding geometries of atoms in crystals. The first such rules were proposed by Linus Pauling,
who considered how one might pack together oppositely charged spheres of different radii.
Pauling proposed from geometric considerations that the quality of the “fit” depended on
the radius ratio of the anion and the cation.
If the anion is considered as the packing atom in the crystal, then the smaller cation fills
interstitial sites (“holes”). Cations will find arrangements in which they can contact the
largest number of anions. If the cation can touch all of its nearest neighbour anions then the
fit is good. If the cation is too small for a given site, that coordination number will be
unstable and it will prefer a lower coordination structure. The table below gives the ranges of
cation/anion radius ratios that give the best fit for a given coordination geometry.
Coordination
number
Geometry ρ = rcation/ranion
2 linear 0 – 0.155
3 triangular 0.155 – 0.225
4 tetrahedral 0.225 – 0.414
4 square planar 0.414 – 0.732
6 octahedral 0.414 – 0.732
8 cubic 0.732 – 1.0
12 cuboctahedral 1.0
