Title: Materials Data on Ba7Sn3Se13 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ba7Sn3Se13 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent Ba2+ sites. In the first Ba2+ site, Ba2+ is bonded to six Se2- atoms to form distorted BaSe6 pentagonal pyramids that share a cornercorner with one SnSe4 tetrahedra, edges with two SnSe4 tetrahedra, and a faceface with one BaSe6 pentagonal pyramid. There are a spread of Ba–Se bond distances ranging from 3.23–3.60 Å. In the second Ba2+ site, Ba2+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Se2- atoms. There are a spread of Ba–Se bond distances ranging from 3.36–3.89 Å. In the third Ba2+ site, Ba2+ is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to nine Se2- atoms. There are a spread of Ba–Se bond distances ranging from 3.39–3.67 Å. In the fourth Ba2+ site, Ba2+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Se2- atoms. There are a spread of Ba–Se bond distances ranging from 3.28–3.89 Å. There are two inequivalent Sn4+ sites. In the first Sn4+ site, Sn4+ is bonded to four Se2- atoms to form SnSe4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one BaSe6 pentagonal pyramid and an edgeedge with one BaSe6 pentagonal pyramid. There are two shorter (2.56 Å) and twomore » longer (2.57 Å) Sn–Se bond lengths. In the second Sn4+ site, Sn4+ is bonded to four Se2- atoms to form SnSe4 tetrahedra that share edges with two equivalent BaSe6 pentagonal pyramids. There are a spread of Sn–Se bond distances ranging from 2.52–2.58 Å. There are eight inequivalent Se2- sites. In the first Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to four Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the second Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the third Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the fourth Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the fifth Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to five Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the sixth Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to five Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the seventh Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to six Ba2+ atoms. In the eighth Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to three Ba2+ and one Sn4+ atom.« less
