Abstract

Li4Mg23B54 is hexagonal omega structure-derived structured and crystallizes in the hexagonal P6/mmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Li sites. In the first Li site, Li is bonded to twelve B atoms to form LiB12 cuboctahedra that share edges with twelve MgB12 cuboctahedra, faces with two MgB12 cuboctahedra, and faces with six equivalent LiB12 cuboctahedra.

In the second Li site, Li is bonded to twelve B atoms to form LiB12 cuboctahedra that share edges with twelve MgB12 cuboctahedra, faces with two MgB12 cuboctahedra, and faces with six equivalent LiB12 cuboctahedra.
