Title: Materials Data on YbCu9Sn4 by Materials Project

Abstract

YbCu9Sn4 is Bergman Structure: Mg32(Al,Zn)49 Bergman-like structured and crystallizes in the tetragonal I4/mcm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Yb is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to sixteen Cu and eight equivalent Sn atoms. There are eight shorter (3.58 Å) and eight longer (3.63 Å) Yb–Cu bond lengths. All Yb–Sn bond lengths are 3.50 Å. There are three inequivalent Cu sites. In the first Cu site, Cu is bonded to two equivalent Yb, six Cu, and four equivalent Sn atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing CuYb2Cu6Sn4 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Cu–Cu bond distances ranging from 2.53–2.76 Å. There are a spread of Cu–Sn bond distances ranging from 2.58–2.69 Å. In the second Cu site, Cu is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Yb, six Cu, and four equivalent Sn atoms. There are a spread of Cu–Cu bond distances ranging from 2.54–2.99 Å. There are two shorter (2.74 Å) and two longer (2.79 Å) Cu–Sn bond lengths. In the third Cu site, Cu is bonded to eight Cu and four equivalent Sn atoms to form a mixture of corner and face-sharing CuCu8Sn4 cuboctahedra. All Cu–Sn bond lengths are 2.76 Å.
