Title: Materials Data on LiNb3Cl8 by Materials Project

Abstract

LiNb3Cl8 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmce space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Li1+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form distorted LiCl5 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with four NbCl5 square pyramids, edges with two NbCl5 square pyramids, and an edgeedge with one LiCl5 trigonal bipyramid. There are a spread of Li–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.35–2.82 Å. There are three inequivalent Nb+2.33+ sites. In the first Nb+2.33+ site, Nb+2.33+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form NbCl5 square pyramids that share corners with five NbCl5 square pyramids, a cornercorner with one LiCl5 trigonal bipyramid, and an edgeedge with one LiCl5 trigonal bipyramid. There are a spread of Nb–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.46–2.81 Å. In the second Nb+2.33+ site, Nb+2.33+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form NbCl5 square pyramids that share corners with four NbCl5 square pyramids and corners with two equivalent LiCl5 trigonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Nb–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.46–2.68 Å. In the third Nb+2.33+ site, Nb+2.33+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form NbCl5 square pyramids that share corners with five NbCl5 square pyramids, a cornercorner with one LiCl5 trigonal bipyramid, and an edgeedge with one LiCl5more » trigonal bipyramid. There are a spread of Nb–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.46–2.79 Å. There are six inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to two Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Li1+ and one Nb+2.33+ atom. In the third Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Li1+ and two Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the fourth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a distorted T-shaped geometry to one Li1+ and two Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the fifth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to two Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the sixth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a distorted T-shaped geometry to one Li1+ and two Nb+2.33+ atoms.« less
