You assumed that the cations touch along the $c$ direction. They don't. In most ionic compounds you have only anion to cation contact and, therefore, any attempt to determine ionic radii from lattice parameters gives only the sum of the two radii, not the individual values. There are exceptions such as lithium iodide, in which the lattice parameters ...

To prepare copper acetate absence H2O2, employ a known method from hydrometallurgy to process copper ore employing aqueous ammonia, air (a source of oxygen) and a small amount of salt (acting as an electrolyte for this, in part, spontaneous electrochemical reaction detailed below). This results in tetra-ammine copper hydroxide. The latter exists only in ...

According to the work of Ninet et al. published in 2014 [1], ammonia has a β-phase at 150 GPa, where it transitions into ionic crystalline form, forming $\ce{[NH4+][NH2-]}.$ References Ninet, S.; Datchi, F.; Dumas, P.; Mezouar, M.; Garbarino, G.; Mafety, A.; Pickard, C. J.; Needs, R. J.; Saitta, A. M. Experimental and Theoretical Evidence for an Ionic ...
