Title: Materials Data on EuCl2 by Materials Project

Abstract

EuCl2 is Cotunnite structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Eu2+ is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to nine Cl1- atoms. There are a spread of Eu–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.95–3.56 Å. There are two inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded to four equivalent Eu2+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing ClEu4 tetrahedra. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to five equivalent Eu2+ atoms.
