 Title: CRYSTAL STRUCTURE DETERMINATIONS AND STRUCTURAL TRENDS IN CORRELATED ELECTRON SYSTEMS Authors: Allred, Jared Michael Advisors: Cava, Robert J Contributors: Chemistry Department Keywords: CoSnCrystal Structureiron arsenideruthenium oxidevanadium oxide Subjects: Chemistry Issue Date: 2012 Publisher: Princeton, NJ : Princeton University Abstract: Complex and unique crystallographic structures are interesting, even if it is only for the sense of wonder that comes from trying to comprehend how such a thing can be. But there is more to it than that, for though in the end the properties are the motivation for continued exploration--it is the properties that drive fundamental and application oriented research alike--the properties themselves stem from the structural parameters. It is the privilege and delight of solid state chemists to investigate the rich relationship between structure and properties. The richness comes from the fact that though chemistry has a rigorous basis in first principles, many of its tools have an empirical component. Thus, for every immutable principle there is another `rule of thumb'. It is the manifestation of old and established rules in completely new and unexpected ways that excites the solid state chemist. In this dissertation I will discuss in detail the structures of four systems related to correlated electron problems. The first is Na27Ru14O48
