While the stable modification of CsNiF3 is of green colour, a yellow phase is obtained by fluorination of CsNiCl3 and decomposition of the product “CsNiF4”, which contains Ni4+ and Ni3+ besides Ni2+. The two modifications have the 2L- and 9L-perovskite-structure, respectively, and are characterized by their X-ray patterns and low-temperature ligand field spectra. The differences in colours and spectral band positions are discussed with respect to the Ni-F-Ni bond angles
