Nuclear quadrupole resonance (-NQR) measurements in have revealed an unexpected puzzling picture evidencing the absence of a noticeable local hyperfine magnetic field on nuclei in the antiferromagnetically ordered state below , and considerable charge redistribution as compared with the counterpart system. Unconventional “nonmagnetic” behavior of copper ions in points to a possibly nonmagnetic copper valent state with antiferromagnetically ordered oxygen surroundings. It means that the hole in the cell should be localized at oxygen, rather than at copper sites. We suggest a qualitative physical reasoning for the “sp hybridization induced oxygen hole stabilization effect” which is believed to be more pronounced in as compared with .
