Title: Materials Data on MnFe2O3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Mn(Fe)2O3 is Caswellsilverite-like structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mn2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form MnO6 octahedra that share a cornercorner with one FeO6 octahedra, corners with five equivalent MnO6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent MnO6 octahedra, and edges with ten FeO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–2°. There are a spread of Mn–O bond distances ranging from 2.18–2.25 Å. There are four inequivalent Fe2+ sites. In the first Fe2+ site, Fe2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form FeO6 octahedra that share corners with six FeO6 octahedra, edges with six equivalent MnO6 octahedra, and edges with six FeO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–3°. There are a spread of Fe–O bond distances ranging from 2.14–2.24 Å. In the second Fe2+ site, Fe2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form FeO6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent MnO6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent FeO6 octahedra, edges with four equivalent MnO6 octahedra, and edges with eight FeO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 0°. There are two shorter (2.17 Å) and four longer (2.24 Å) Fe–O bond lengths.
