A mixed molecular salt of lithium and sodium breaks the Hume-Rothery rules for solid solutions
Lestari, Monica; Lusi, Matteo
The first molecular solid solution of lithium and sodium ions is reported. In spite of the different chemical and structural properties of the parent compounds, the two cations form a homogeneous mixed phase with the isoorotate ion. Such observation appears in contrast with the Hume-Rothery principles for solid solutions. Furthermore the mixed salts in the series are thermally stable up to 100 8C and non-hygroscopic, which makes them relevant for their potential use as a lithium drug substance.
