Title: Materials Data on K2Sm2As2Se9 by Materials Project

Abstract

K2Sm2As2Se9 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent K1+ sites. In the first K1+ site, K1+ is bonded in a distorted body-centered cubic geometry to eight Se2- atoms. There are a spread of K–Se bond distances ranging from 3.41–3.64 Å. In the second K1+ site, K1+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven Se2- atoms. There are a spread of K–Se bond distances ranging from 3.29–3.54 Å. In the third K1+ site, K1+ is bonded to six Se2- atoms to form distorted KSe6 octahedra that share corners with four equivalent SmSe8 hexagonal bipyramids, corners with two equivalent AsSe5 square pyramids, edges with two equivalent SmSe8 hexagonal bipyramids, and edges with two equivalent KSe6 octahedra. There are a spread of K–Se bond distances ranging from 3.28–3.41 Å. There are two inequivalent Sm3+ sites. In the first Sm3+ site, Sm3+ is bonded to eight Se2- atoms to form distorted SmSe8 hexagonal bipyramids that share corners with two equivalent KSe6 octahedra, a cornercorner with one AsSe5 square pyramid, an edgeedge with one KSe6 octahedra, and faces with two equivalent SmSe8 hexagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 17–20°. There are a spreadmore » of Sm–Se bond distances ranging from 2.97–3.10 Å.

The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 9°. In the ninth Se2- site, Se2- is bonded to two equivalent K1+, two equivalent Sm3+, and one As5+ atom to form distorted SeK2Sm2As trigonal bipyramids that share edges with two equivalent SeK2Sm2AsSe octahedra and edges with two equivalent SeK2Sm2As square pyramids.
