Title: Materials Data on YbCl2 by Materials Project

Abstract

YbCl2 is Baddeleyite-like structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pbca space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Yb2+ is bonded to seven Cl1- atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing YbCl7 pentagonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Yb–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.74–2.87 Å. There are two inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded to four equivalent Yb2+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing ClYb4 tetrahedra. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three equivalent Yb2+ atoms.
