Title: Materials Data on La8Nb7S22 by Materials Project

Abstract

La8Nb7S22 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Ccc2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent La3+ sites. In the first La3+ site, La3+ is bonded to seven S2- atoms to form distorted LaS7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with two equivalent LaS7 pentagonal bipyramids, corners with four NbS6 pentagonal pyramids, edges with five equivalent LaS7 pentagonal bipyramids, and an edgeedge with one NbS6 pentagonal pyramid. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.90–3.00 Å. In the second La3+ site, La3+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.88–3.28 Å. In the third La3+ site, La3+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.89–3.31 Å. In the fourth La3+ site, La3+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven S2- atoms. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.92–3.02 Å. There are four inequivalent Nb+2.86+ sites. In the first Nb+2.86+ site, Nb+2.86+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form distorted edge-sharing NbS6 pentagonal pyramids.

In the ninth S2- site, S2- is bonded to five La3+ atoms to form distorted SLa5 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with five SLa5 trigonal bipyramids, corners with four equivalent SLaNb3 trigonal pyramids, and edges with eight SLa5 trigonal bipyramids. In the tenth S2- site, S2- is bonded to two La3+ and three Nb+2.86+ atoms to form distorted SLa2Nb3 trigonal bipyramids that share a cornercorner with one SLa5 square pyramid, corners with five SLa5 trigonal bipyramids, corners with three equivalent SLaNb3 trigonal pyramids, edges with two SLa5 trigonal bipyramids, an edgeedge with one SLaNb3 trigonal pyramid, and a faceface with one SLa2Nb3 trigonal bipyramid. In the eleventh S2- site, S2- is bonded to five La3+ atoms to form distorted SLa5 trigonal bipyramids that share a cornercorner with one SLa5 square pyramid, corners with five SLa5 trigonal bipyramids, corners with two SLaNb3 trigonal pyramids, and edges with nine SLa5 trigonal bipyramids.« less
