Title: Materials Data on SnCl2 by Materials Project

Abstract

SnCl2 is Cotunnite structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is one-dimensional and consists of two SnCl2 ribbons oriented in the (1, 0, 0) direction. Sn2+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form distorted edge-sharing SnCl5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Sn–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.63–3.04 Å. There are two inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three equivalent Sn2+ atoms. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a water-like geometry to two equivalent Sn2+ atoms.
