Title: Materials Data on LiFePO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

LiFePO4 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pna2_1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted LiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with six FeO6 octahedra, corners with two PO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one PO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 72–76°. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 2.00–2.10 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted LiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with six FeO6 octahedra, corners with two PO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one PO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 72–76°. There are two shorter (2.00 Å) and two longer (2.09 Å) Li–O bond lengths. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted LiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with six FeO6 octahedra, corners with two PO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one PO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 72–76°. There are two shorter (2.00 Å) and two longer (2.09 Å) Li–O bond lengths. There are three inequivalent Fe2+ sites.

The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 48–50°. There is two shorter (1.54 Å) and two longer (1.57 Å) P–O bond length. There are twelve inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom.
