Local coordination about La(3+) in molten LaCl3 and its mixtures with alkali chlorides.
The local structure around the La(3+) ions in molten LaCl(3) and its mixtures with alkali and alkaline earth chlorides has been investigated by using extended X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and molecular dynamics (MD) techniques. Such mixtures, which are of current technological interest, are known to be thermodynamically nonideal, and there has been a good deal of work to understand the structural effects factors that contribute to the nonideality. New experimental methods allow obse...Expand abstract
