Title: Materials Data on CaCd2 by Materials Project

Abstract

CaCd2 is Hexagonal Laves structured and crystallizes in the hexagonal P6_3/mmc space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ca is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to twelve Cd atoms. There are a spread of Ca–Cd bond distances ranging from 3.45–3.57 Å. There are two inequivalent Cd sites. In the first Cd site, Cd is bonded to six equivalent Ca and six equivalent Cd atoms to form a mixture of edge, face, and corner-sharing CdCa6Cd6 cuboctahedra. All Cd–Cd bond lengths are 3.01 Å. In the second Cd site, Cd is bonded to six equivalent Ca and six Cd atoms to form a mixture of edge, face, and corner-sharing CdCa6Cd6 cuboctahedra. There are two shorter (2.98 Å) and two longer (3.13 Å) Cd–Cd bond lengths.
