Title: Materials Data on ZnI2 by Materials Project

Abstract

ZnI2 crystallizes in the tetragonal I4_1/acd space group. The structure is three-dimensional and consists of two ZnI2 frameworks. Zn2+ is bonded to four I1- atoms to form corner-sharing ZnI4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Zn–I bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.67 Å. There are three inequivalent I1- sites. In the first I1- site, I1- is bonded in a water-like geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ atoms. In the second I1- site, I1- is bonded in a water-like geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ atoms. In the third I1- site, I1- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ atoms.
