Title: Materials Data on CuHg3As2Br3 by Materials Project

Abstract

CuHg3As2Br3 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Cu1+ sites. In the first Cu1+ site, Cu1+ is bonded to four Br1- atoms to form CuBr4 tetrahedra that share corners with four HgAs2Br4 octahedra, corners with two equivalent CuBr4 tetrahedra, edges with four HgAs2Br4 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one HgAs2Br4 pentagonal pyramid. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 50–53°. There are two shorter (2.40 Å) and two longer (2.67 Å) Cu–Br bond lengths. In the second Cu1+ site, Cu1+ is bonded to four Br1- atoms to form CuBr4 tetrahedra that share corners with four HgAs2Br4 octahedra, corners with two CuBr4 tetrahedra, edges with three HgAs2Br4 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one HgAs2Br4 pentagonal pyramid. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 55–90°. There are a spread of Cu–Br bond distances ranging from 2.36–2.74 Å. There are six inequivalent Hg2+ sites. In the first Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to two As2- and four Br1- atoms. There are one shorter (2.59 Å) and one longer (2.60 Å) Hg–As bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–Br bond distances ranging from 3.01–3.56 Å. In the second Hg2+ site, Hg2+more » is bonded to two equivalent As2- and four Br1- atoms to form distorted HgAs2Br4 pentagonal pyramids that share corners with four HgAs2Br4 octahedra, corners with two equivalent AsHg3As tetrahedra, edges with four HgAs2Br4 octahedra, and edges with three CuBr4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 78–79°. Both Hg–As bond lengths are 2.59 Å. There are two shorter (3.03 Å) and two longer (3.42 Å) Hg–Br bond lengths. In the third Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two As2- and four Br1- atoms to form HgAs2Br4 octahedra that share corners with six HgAs2Br4 octahedra, a cornercorner with one HgAs2Br4 pentagonal pyramid, corners with two equivalent CuBr4 tetrahedra, corners with two AsHg3As tetrahedra, edges with two HgAs2Br4 octahedra, and edges with two CuBr4 tetrahedra.
