Title: Materials Data on LiTa3N4 by Materials Project

Abstract

LiTa3N4 is Caswellsilverite-like structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnn2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six N3- atoms to form LiN6 octahedra that share corners with six TaN6 pentagonal pyramids, edges with two equivalent LiN6 octahedra, edges with four TaN6 octahedra, and edges with six TaN6 pentagonal pyramids. There are a spread of Li–N bond distances ranging from 2.12–2.18 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six N3- atoms to form LiN6 octahedra that share corners with six TaN6 pentagonal pyramids, edges with three LiN6 octahedra, edges with three TaN6 octahedra, and edges with six TaN6 pentagonal pyramids. There are a spread of Li–N bond distances ranging from 2.14–2.19 Å. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six N3- atoms to form LiN6 octahedra that share corners with six TaN6 pentagonal pyramids, an edgeedge with one LiN6 octahedra, edges with five TaN6 octahedra, and edges with six TaN6 pentagonal pyramids.
