Abstract

The structure of BaBeSiO has been determined from powder X-ray diffraction data and consists of an ordered framework of BeO and SiO tetrahedra configured in a cristobalite-type geometry. Barium occupies strongly distorted 12-coordinate sites within the framework. Be and Si MASNMR spectra are consistent with the ordered distribution of beryllium and silicon determined for the framework.
