Abstract

Vibrational spectra of pyridine-intercalated MnPS3 (Py-MnPS3) crystals reveal that a part of pyridine molecules in the interlayer space of MnPS3 are converted to pyridinium cations (PyH+) and then form hydrogen-bonded complexes with neutral pyridine molecules. Powder X-ray diffraction and polarized i.r. reflection spectra of Py-MnPS3 crystals indicate that the majority of molecular planes of PyH+ as well as neutral pyridine arc oriented perpendicularly to the layers of MnPS3 with the C2 symmetry axes parallel to the layers.
