Single crystals of Cu2ZnSiS4, dicopper(I) zinc silicon tetrasulfide, have been prepared via high-temperature solid-state synthesis. Cu2ZnSiS4 was found to have the wurtz-stannite structure type, like that of Li2CdGeS4, Li2CdSnS 4, and Cu2CdSiS4. Each sulfur anion is tetra-hedrally coordinated by two Cu cations, one Si cation, and one Zn cation, forming a three-dimensional honeycomb structure. When viewed along the c axis, the atoms are aligned in rows in which each cation alternates with the sulfur anions.
