Title: Materials Data on Li6Ho(BO3)3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li6Ho(BO3)3 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted LiO4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one HoO8 hexagonal bipyramid, a cornercorner with one LiO4 tetrahedra, corners with three LiO5 trigonal bipyramids, and an edgeedge with one LiO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.91–2.12 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form LiO5 trigonal bipyramids that share a cornercorner with one HoO8 hexagonal bipyramid, a cornercorner with one LiO4 tetrahedra, corners with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids, edges with two equivalent HoO8 hexagonal bipyramids, and edges with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 2.00–2.16 Å. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to five O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.92–2.54 Å. In the fourth Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form distorted LiO5 trigonal bipyramids that share a cornercorner with one HoO8 hexagonal bipyramid, corners with two equivalentmore » LiO4 tetrahedra, corners with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids, edges with two equivalent HoO8 hexagonal bipyramids, and edges with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids.

There are a spread of Ho–O bond distances ranging from 2.30–2.53 Å. There are three inequivalent B3+ sites. In the first B3+ site, B3+ is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three O2- atoms. There are a spread of B–O bond distances ranging from 1.36–1.40 Å. In the second B3+ site, B3+ is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three O2- atoms. There is one shorter (1.38 Å) and two longer (1.39 Å) B–O bond length. In the third B3+ site, B3+ is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three O2- atoms. There are a spread of B–O bond distances ranging from 1.37–1.40 Å. There are nine inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four Li1+ and one B3+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Li1+, one Ho3+, and one B3+ atom to form a mixture of distorted corner and edge-sharing OLi3HoB trigonal bipyramids. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to four Li1+, one Ho3+, and one B3+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to three Li1+, one Ho3+, and one B3+ atom. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Li1+, one Ho3+, and one B3+ atom to form a mixture of distorted corner and edge-sharing OLi3HoB trigonal bipyramids. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to one Li1+, two equivalent Ho3+, and one B3+ atom. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four Li1+ and one B3+ atom. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded to four Li1+ and one B3+ atom to form distorted edge-sharing OLi4B trigonal bipyramids. In the ninth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to two Li1+, two equivalent Ho3+, and one B3+ atom.« less
