Abstract

The structure of liquid NiTe2 and NiTe has been investigated by applying the technique of neutron diffraction to isotopically enriched samples. The three partial structure factors relating to Ni-Ni, Te-Te and Ni-Te correlations have been sucessfully extracted from the experimental date. It is concluded that tellurium exists in these liquids as a dense assembly of Te2- ions. The average coordination of Ni2+ is characterised by approximately three Ni2+ at 2.54Å with four Te2- ions at 2.56Å for NiTe and approximately two Ni2+ ions at 2.81Å with four Te2- ions at 2.56 Å for NiTe2. Comparison is made with the results of a new analysis of earlier data taken on liquid CuTe.
