Title: Materials Data on U6Co30Si19 by Materials Project

Abstract

U6Co30Si19 crystallizes in the hexagonal P6_3/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent U3+ sites. In the first U3+ site, U3+ is bonded to six Si4- atoms to form distorted USi6 pentagonal pyramids that share corners with six CoSi4 tetrahedra, edges with nine CoSi4 tetrahedra, and faces with two equivalent USi6 pentagonal pyramids. There are a spread of U–Si bond distances ranging from 2.92–2.94 Å. In the second U3+ site, U3+ is bonded to six Si4- atoms to form distorted USi6 pentagonal pyramids that share corners with four CoSi4 tetrahedra, edges with eight CoSi4 tetrahedra, and faces with two equivalent USi6 pentagonal pyramids. There are two shorter (2.91 Å) and four longer (2.92 Å) U–Si bond lengths. There are ten inequivalent Co+1.93+ sites. In the first Co+1.93+ site, Co+1.93+ is bonded to four Si4- atoms to form CoSi4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent USi6 pentagonal pyramids, corners with ten CoSi4 tetrahedra, edges with three USi6 pentagonal pyramids, and edges with three CoSi4 tetrahedra.
