Preparative studies carried out on compositions lying between Y 4Si2O7N2 (J-phase) and Y 4Al2O9 (YAM) show similar variations in structure to those already reported for related compositions in the analogous Dy-Si-Al-O-N system. Careful studies of X-ray diffraction patterns confirm that whereas all compositions have a cuspidene-like structure, there is a marked change in the a and b unit cell dimensions for x values in excess of approximately 0.8 in the general formula Y4Si2-xAl xO7+xN2-x, with much smaller changes in the c unit cell dimension and in the β angle. The results are compared with similar data previously presented for J-phase structures in the DySi-Al-O-N system.
