Title: Materials Data on Al2CdCl8 by Materials Project

Abstract

CdAl2Cl8 crystallizes in the monoclinic Pc space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of one CdAl2Cl8 sheet oriented in the (0, 1, 0) direction. Cd2+ is bonded to six Cl1- atoms to form CdCl6 octahedra that share corners with two AlCl4 tetrahedra and edges with two AlCl4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Cd–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.65–2.75 Å. There are two inequivalent Al3+ sites. In the first Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to four Cl1- atoms to form AlCl4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one CdCl6 octahedra and an edgeedge with one CdCl6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 59°. There are a spread of Al–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.10–2.20 Å. In the second Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to four Cl1- atoms to form AlCl4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one CdCl6 octahedra and an edgeedge with one CdCl6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 59°. There are a spread of Al–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.10–2.20 Å. There are eight inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a single-bond geometry to one Al3+ atom. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in an L-shapedmore » geometry to one Cd2+ and one Al3+ atom. In the third Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to one Cd2+ and one Al3+ atom. In the fourth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in an L-shaped geometry to one Cd2+ and one Al3+ atom. In the fifth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in an L-shaped geometry to one Cd2+ and one Al3+ atom. In the sixth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in an L-shaped geometry to one Cd2+ and one Al3+ atom. In the seventh Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a single-bond geometry to one Al3+ atom. In the eighth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to one Cd2+ and one Al3+ atom.« less
