Abstract: Two systems were studied on high-resolution neutron time-of-flight powder diffraction (HRDP), a totally B-site disordered ceramic disk of Pb2ScNbO6, and a partially ordered ceramic block of Pb2ScTaO6. We found Pb2ScNbO6 to be fully disordered, space group Pm3m with lattice constant 4.08153(1)Angstrom, whereas Pb2ScTaO6 was found to be 86(1)% ordered with space group Fm3m and lattice constant 8.14866(1)Angstrom. The high-resolution on HRDP allowed the crystal system in both compounds to be identified as rhombohedral. Two space groups, R3 and R3m were tested. A large asymmetry was found in the 3.0Angstrom co-ordination sphere of Pb, which changes its coordination number from 12 to 9 on the ferroelectric transition. The co-ordination of oxygen around the Pb suggests that the phase transition is related to the de-localisation of a stereochemically active lone pair. In both Pb2ScTaO6 and Pb2ScNbO6, the major displacements occurred for the Pb(s) in the order of 0.25Angstrom, whilst the displacements in the B-site octahedra were much smaller.
