Title: Materials Data on Zn3(PO4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Zn3(PO4)2 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Zn2+ sites. In the first Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form ZnO4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one ZnO4 tetrahedra, corners with four equivalent PO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one ZnO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Zn–O bond distances ranging from 1.92–2.04 Å. In the second Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form ZnO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent ZnO4 tetrahedra and corners with four equivalent PO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.93 Å) and two longer (2.03 Å) Zn–O bond length. P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with six ZnO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.53–1.58 Å. There are four inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to two Zn2+ and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to one Zn2+ and one P5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bentmore » 120 degrees geometry to one Zn2+ and one P5+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ and one P5+ atom.« less
