Title: Materials Data on U(SiNi)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

UNi2Si2 crystallizes in the tetragonal I4/mmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. U4+ is bonded in a distorted body-centered cubic geometry to eight equivalent Si4- atoms. All U–Si bond lengths are 3.02 Å. Ni2+ is bonded to four equivalent Si4- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing NiSi4 tetrahedra. All Ni–Si bond lengths are 2.31 Å. Si4- is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to four equivalent U4+, four equivalent Ni2+, and one Si4- atom. The Si–Si bond length is 2.33 Å.
