Title: Materials Data on Hg9Bi2(AsBr3)4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Hg9Bi2(AsBr3)4 crystallizes in the tetragonal P4_3 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are nine inequivalent Hg2+ sites. In the first Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to two As3- and two Br1- atoms. Both Hg–As bond lengths are 2.54 Å. There are one shorter (3.22 Å) and one longer (3.38 Å) Hg–Br bond lengths. In the second Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two As3- and three Br1- atoms to form distorted HgAs2Br3 square pyramids that share a cornercorner with one BiBr6 octahedra, a cornercorner with one HgAs2Br3 trigonal bipyramid, and an edgeedge with one BiBr6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 53°. There are one shorter (2.55 Å) and one longer (2.56 Å) Hg–As bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 3.25–3.46 Å. In the third Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to one As3- and three Br1- atoms. The Hg–As bond length is 2.52 Å. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 2.51–3.36 Å. In the fourth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted see-saw-like geometry to two As3- and two Br1- atoms. There are one shorter (2.55 Å) and onemore » longer (2.56 Å) Hg–As bond lengths. There are one shorter (3.33 Å) and one longer (3.49 Å) Hg–Br bond lengths.

In the second Bi3+ site, Bi3+ is bonded to six Br1- atoms to form BiBr6 octahedra that share a cornercorner with one BiBr6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent HgAs2Br3 trigonal bipyramids, and an edgeedge with one HgAs2Br3 square pyramid. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 52°. There are a spread of Bi–Br bond distances ranging from 2.82–3.09 Å. There are four inequivalent As3- sites. In the first As3- site, As3- is bonded to four Hg2+ atoms to form corner-sharing AsHg4 tetrahedra. In the second As3- site, As3- is bonded to four Hg2+ atoms to form corner-sharing AsHg4 tetrahedra.
