Title: Materials Data on Nd3NbO7 by Materials Project

Abstract

Nd3NbO7 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Nd3+ sites. In the first Nd3+ site, Nd3+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six O2- atoms. There are a spread of Nd–O bond distances ranging from 2.40–2.46 Å. In the second Nd3+ site, Nd3+ is bonded to seven O2- atoms to form distorted NdO7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with two equivalent NbO6 octahedra, corners with three equivalent NdO7 pentagonal bipyramids, edges with two equivalent NbO6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent NdO7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 30–43°. There are a spread of Nd–O bond distances ranging from 2.35–2.68 Å. Nb5+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form NbO6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent NbO6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent NdO7 pentagonal bipyramids, and edges with four equivalent NdO7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 35°. There are a spread of Nb–O bond distances ranging from 1.95–2.10 Å. There are four inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Nd3+ and one Nb5+ atom to form distorted ONd3Nb tetrahedra that share corners with four equivalent ONd4 tetrahedramore » and edges with four ONd3Nb tetrahedra. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Nd3+ and two equivalent Nb5+ atoms. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded to four Nd3+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing ONd4 tetrahedra. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Nd3+ and one Nb5+ atom.« less
