Title: Materials Data on UO3 by Materials Project

Abstract

UO3 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. U6+ is bonded to eight O2- atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing UO8 hexagonal bipyramids. There are a spread of U–O bond distances ranging from 2.07–2.36 Å. There are two inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to three equivalent U6+ atoms. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a linear geometry to two equivalent U6+ atoms.
