Title: Materials Data on U2Nb3Ge4 by Materials Project

Abstract

U2Nb3Ge4 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. U is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven Ge atoms. There are a spread of U–Ge bond distances ranging from 2.87–3.03 Å. There are two inequivalent Nb sites. In the first Nb site, Nb is bonded to six Ge atoms to form corner-sharing NbGe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 47–53°. There are a spread of Nb–Ge bond distances ranging from 2.74–2.82 Å. In the second Nb site, Nb is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six Ge atoms. There are a spread of Nb–Ge bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.80 Å. There are three inequivalent Ge sites. In the first Ge site, Ge is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to four equivalent U, four Nb, and one Ge atom. The Ge–Ge bond length is 2.68 Å. In the second Ge site, Ge is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to two equivalent U, six Nb, and one Ge atom. In the third Ge site, Ge is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to four equivalent U, four Nb, and one Ge atom. The Ge–Ge bond length is 2.77 Å.
