Title: Materials Data on MgTe2 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgTe2 is Pyrite structured and crystallizes in the cubic Pa-3 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to six equivalent Te1- atoms to form corner-sharing MgTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 65°. All Mg–Te bond lengths are 2.98 Å. Te1- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to three equivalent Mg2+ and one Te1- atom. The Te–Te bond length is 2.79 Å.
