The structure of Ag2Cu2O4 synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of its precursor Ag2Cu2O3 is studied under a new perspective. Irradiation of the oxide with X-ray beam transforms the electronic structure of the phase by redistributing the internal charge within the material. The refined structure shows several possibilities all with metals in the same arrangement, but with oxygen atoms distributed in a rather disordered way. This is typical of ionic conductors. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
