Title: Materials Data on PuSn3 by Materials Project

Abstract

PuSn3 is Uranium Silicide structured and crystallizes in the cubic Pm-3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Pu is bonded to twelve equivalent Sn atoms to form PuSn12 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve equivalent PuSn12 cuboctahedra, edges with twenty-four equivalent SnPu4Sn8 cuboctahedra, faces with six equivalent PuSn12 cuboctahedra, and faces with twelve equivalent SnPu4Sn8 cuboctahedra. All Pu–Sn bond lengths are 3.24 Å. Sn is bonded to four equivalent Pu and eight equivalent Sn atoms to form distorted SnPu4Sn8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve equivalent SnPu4Sn8 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent PuSn12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen equivalent SnPu4Sn8 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent PuSn12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen equivalent SnPu4Sn8 cuboctahedra. All Sn–Sn bond lengths are 3.24 Å.
