Title: Materials Data on MgCl2 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgCl2 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of one MgCl2 sheet oriented in the (1, 0, 0) direction. Mg2+ is bonded to four Cl1- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing MgCl4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.35–2.38 Å. There are three inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in an L-shaped geometry to two equivalent Mg2+ atoms. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a linear geometry to two equivalent Mg2+ atoms. In the third Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a linear geometry to two equivalent Mg2+ atoms.
