Title: Materials Data on NaGa3Te5 by Materials Project

Abstract

NaGa3Te5 crystallizes in the trigonal R32 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Na1+ sites. In the first Na1+ site, Na1+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form distorted NaTe6 octahedra that share corners with six NaTe6 octahedra, corners with four GaTe4 tetrahedra, and edges with four GaTe4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 23–31°. There are a spread of Na–Te bond distances ranging from 3.26–3.39 Å. In the second Na1+ site, Na1+ is bonded to six equivalent Te2- atoms to form distorted NaTe6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent NaTe6 octahedra and corners with twelve GaTe4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 31°. All Na–Te bond lengths are 3.36 Å. There are two inequivalent Ga3+ sites. In the first Ga3+ site, Ga3+ is bonded to four Te2- atoms to form GaTe4 tetrahedra that share corners with two NaTe6 octahedra, corners with six GaTe4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one NaTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 54–69°. There are a spread of Ga–Te bond distances ranging from 2.66–2.73 Å. In the second Ga3+ site, Ga3+ is bonded to four Te2- atoms to form GaTe4 tetrahedra that share corners withmore » two NaTe6 octahedra, corners with four GaTe4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one NaTe6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one GaTe4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 58–77°. There are a spread of Ga–Te bond distances ranging from 2.63–2.72 Å. There are five inequivalent Te2- sites. In the first Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Na1+ and two equivalent Ga3+ atoms. In the second Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to three equivalent Ga3+ atoms. In the third Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to two equivalent Na1+ and two equivalent Ga3+ atoms to form distorted corner-sharing TeNa2Ga2 tetrahedra. In the fourth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to two Na1+ and two Ga3+ atoms. In the fifth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three Ga3+ atoms.« less
