Title: Materials Data on Hg3(SBr)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Hg3(SBr)2 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent Hg2+ sites. In the first Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to two S2- and three Br1- atoms. Both Hg–S bond lengths are 2.46 Å. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 2.94–3.58 Å. In the second Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two S2- and four Br1- atoms to form distorted HgS2Br4 octahedra that share corners with four equivalent HgS2Br4 octahedra, a cornercorner with one HgS2Br3 square pyramid, edges with four equivalent HgS2Br4 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one HgS2Br3 square pyramid. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–4°. There are one shorter (2.43 Å) and one longer (2.44 Å) Hg–S bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 3.21–3.48 Å. In the third Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two equivalent S2- and three Br1- atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing HgS2Br3 square pyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 64°. Both Hg–S bond lengths are 2.46 Å. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 2.94–3.38 Å. In the fourth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ ismore » bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to two equivalent S2- and three Br1- atoms. Both Hg–S bond lengths are 2.45 Å. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 3.01–3.31 Å. There are two inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three Hg2+ atoms. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three Hg2+ atoms. There are five inequivalent Br1- sites. In the first Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six Hg2+ atoms. In the second Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to five Hg2+ atoms. In the third Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a distorted square co-planar geometry to four equivalent Hg2+ atoms. In the fourth Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a distorted body-centered cubic geometry to eight Hg2+ atoms. In the fifth Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to three Hg2+ atoms.« less
