Four new A(2)CdSn(2)S(6) (A= Cs(1), Rb(2), K(3-beta) and K(3-alpha)) compounds have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods. The isostructural cesium(1) and rubidium(2) compounds have noncentrosymmetric three-dimensional tetrahedral CdSn2S6](2-) framework structure and show second-harmonic-generation response. The layered potassium compounds, 3-beta and 3-alpha, have centrosymmetric tetrahedral and octahedral CdSn2S6](2-) framework structures respectively and the compound 3-beta, on heating, transforms to compound 3-alpha. The compound 3-alpha undergoes facile potassium ion-exchange in aqueous medium with various mono-, di- and tri- valent cations at room temperature.
