A new family of iodoplumbates based on phosphonium cations have been synthesized and characterized via X-ray crystallography. Thermogravimetric analysis demonstrates that these materials have a remarkably high thermal stability and show potential for applications as organic-inorganic hybrid semiconductors. We also present the synthesis of three novel phosphonium salts and the crystallographic elucidation of these compounds.
