Title: Materials Data on Tb2Al6Si4Au by Materials Project

Abstract

Tb2AuAl6Si4 crystallizes in the trigonal R-3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Tb is bonded to six Si atoms to form distorted TbSi6 octahedra that share corners with twelve AlSi4 tetrahedra, edges with six equivalent TbSi6 octahedra, and edges with six AlSi4 tetrahedra. There are three shorter (2.97 Å) and three longer (2.98 Å) Tb–Si bond lengths. Au is bonded in a body-centered cubic geometry to eight Al atoms. There are six shorter (2.57 Å) and two longer (2.63 Å) Au–Al bond lengths. There are three inequivalent Al sites. In the first Al site, Al is bonded to one Au and three equivalent Si atoms to form AlSi3Au tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent TbSi6 octahedra, corners with ten AlSiAu3 tetrahedra, edges with three equivalent TbSi6 octahedra, and edges with three equivalent AlSiAu3 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 17°. All Al–Si bond lengths are 2.55 Å. In the second Al site, Al is bonded to four equivalent Si atoms to form distorted AlSi4 tetrahedra that share corners with six equivalent TbSi6 octahedra, corners with six equivalent AlSi4 tetrahedra, edges with three equivalent TbSi6 octahedra, and edges with three equivalent AlSi4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles rangemore » from 21–55°. There are three shorter (2.51 Å) and one longer (2.54 Å) Al–Si bond lengths. In the third Al site, Al is bonded to three equivalent Au and one Si atom to form distorted AlSiAu3 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent TbSi6 octahedra, corners with twelve AlSiAu3 tetrahedra, and edges with six AlSiAu3 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 55°. The Al–Si bond length is 2.58 Å. There are two inequivalent Si sites. In the first Si site, Si is bonded to three equivalent Tb and four Al atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner and edge-sharing SiTb3Al4 pentagonal bipyramids. In the second Si site, Si is bonded to three equivalent Tb and four equivalent Al atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner and edge-sharing SiTb3Al4 pentagonal bipyramids.« less
