A Cu(I) ion conductor obtained by replacement of Ag(I) in α-AgI

  • J. C. Bazán

A solid conductor for Cu(I) was obtained by introducing Cu(I) into the high temperature form of AgI. The cationic transport number is practically one with negligible electronic conduction. The formula of the compound may be expressed by Ag(1−x)Cu x I withx varying with the temperature.
