Title: Materials Data on KSm2Sb3Se8 by Materials Project

Abstract

KSm2Sb3Se8 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. K1+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Se2- atoms. There are a spread of K–Se bond distances ranging from 3.37–3.67 Å. There are two inequivalent Sm3+ sites. In the first Sm3+ site, Sm3+ is bonded to seven Se2- atoms to form distorted SmSe7 pentagonal bipyramids that share a cornercorner with one SbSe6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent SbSe6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent SmSe7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 38°. There are a spread of Sm–Se bond distances ranging from 2.89–3.11 Å. In the second Sm3+ site, Sm3+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Se2- atoms. There are a spread of Sm–Se bond distances ranging from 2.99–3.45 Å. There are three inequivalent Sb3+ sites. In the first Sb3+ site, Sb3+ is bonded to five Se2- atoms to form SbSe5 square pyramids that share corners with six SbSe6 octahedra, edges with two SbSe6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent SbSe5 square pyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 4–93°. There are a spread of Sb–Se bond distances ranging from 2.63–2.91 Å.
