Title: Materials Data on Ca2Sb2S5 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ca2Sb2S5 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Ca2+ sites. In the first Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded to seven S2- atoms to form distorted CaS7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with six equivalent CaS7 pentagonal bipyramids, corners with four equivalent SbS5 square pyramids, edges with two equivalent CaS6 octahedra, and faces with two equivalent SbS5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Ca–S bond distances ranging from 2.89–3.03 Å. In the second Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form CaS6 octahedra that share corners with four equivalent CaS6 octahedra, a cornercorner with one SbS5 square pyramid, edges with two equivalent CaS6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent CaS7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 13–15°. There are a spread of Ca–S bond distances ranging from 2.82–2.90 Å. There are two inequivalent Sb3+ sites. In the first Sb3+ site, Sb3+ is bonded to five S2- atoms to form distorted SbS5 square pyramids that share a cornercorner with one CaS6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent CaS7 pentagonal bipyramids, corners with two equivalent SbS5 square pyramids, an edgeedge with one SbS5 square pyramid, and faces with twomore » equivalent CaS7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 63°. There are a spread of Sb–S bond distances ranging from 2.46–3.17 Å. In the second Sb3+ site, Sb3+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four S2- atoms. There are a spread of Sb–S bond distances ranging from 2.48–3.24 Å. There are five inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three equivalent Ca2+ and one Sb3+ atom. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Ca2+ and three Sb3+ atoms. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded to three Ca2+ and two equivalent Sb3+ atoms to form distorted SCa3Sb2 square pyramids that share corners with four equivalent SCa3Sb2 square pyramids and corners with two equivalent SCa2Sb2 trigonal pyramids. In the fourth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a see-saw-like geometry to three Ca2+ and one Sb3+ atom. In the fifth S2- site, S2- is bonded to two equivalent Ca2+ and two equivalent Sb3+ atoms to form distorted SCa2Sb2 trigonal pyramids that share corners with two equivalent SCa3Sb2 square pyramids, corners with two equivalent SCa2Sb2 trigonal pyramids, and an edgeedge with one SCa2Sb2 trigonal pyramid.« less
