In: Acta Crystallographica, Section C, Vol. 60, No. 7: i69-i70
Rubidium metaborate, Rb3B3O6, was obtained by the reaction of Rb2CO3 and BN using a radiofrequency furnace at a maximum reaction temperature of 1173 K. The crystal structure has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The space group is , with all atoms positioned on a twofold axis (Wyckoff site 18e). The ionic compound is isotypic with Na3B3O6, K3B3O6 and Cs3B3O6.
