Title: Materials Data on Ca2SiO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ca2SiO4 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent Ca2+ sites. In the first Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to five O2- atoms. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.23–2.83 Å. In the second Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven O2- atoms. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.31–2.89 Å. In the third Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form distorted CaO6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent CaO5 square pyramids, corners with four SiO4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one CaO6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one SiO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.28–2.73 Å. In the fourth Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form distorted CaO5 square pyramids that share corners with two equivalent CaO6 octahedra, corners with three SiO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one SiO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 71–83°. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.29–2.54 Å. There are two inequivalent Si4+ sites. In the first Si4+ site, Si4+more » is bonded to four O2- atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent CaO6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent CaO5 square pyramids, and an edgeedge with one CaO5 square pyramid. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 40–64°. There are a spread of Si–O bond distances ranging from 1.64–1.66 Å. In the second Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent CaO6 octahedra, a cornercorner with one CaO5 square pyramid, and an edgeedge with one CaO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 14–17°. There are a spread of Si–O bond distances ranging from 1.64–1.66 Å. There are eight inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to two Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom to form distorted corner-sharing OCa3Si tetrahedra. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom to form corner-sharing OCa3Si tetrahedra. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to three Ca2+ and one Si4+ atom.« less
