Surprisingly, glassy Cs5P5Se12 also exhibited a significant SHG response, at ~5% that of AgGaSe2. Alkali-metal salts of a novel quaternary zirconium selenophosphate phase were isolated using the molten flux technique, having a general formula of AZrPSe6 (A ¼ K, Rb, Cs) [43]. They are isostructural and crystallize in the polar space group Pmc21.

Jiang et al. crystallizes in the NCS space group Pc. The structure also consists of densely packed parallel 11[AsSe2À] polymeric anionic chains and alkali-metal ions, but the conformation of the 11[AsSe2À] chain is different from that of b-polymorphs. The alkali-metal ions are in a distorted-octahedral environment of Se atoms. The edge sharing and corner sharing of the NaSe6 octahedra give rise to a densely packed three-dimensional structure, which is different from the LiSe6 packing in b-LiAsSe2.
