Title: Materials Data on MgO by Materials Project

Abstract

MgO is Wurtzite structured and crystallizes in the hexagonal P6_3mc space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to four equivalent O2- atoms to form corner-sharing MgO4 tetrahedra. There are three shorter (1.99 Å) and one longer (2.02 Å) Mg–O bond lengths. O2- is bonded to four equivalent Mg2+ atoms to form corner-sharing OMg4 tetrahedra.
