Title: Materials Data on AlTeCl7 by Materials Project

Abstract

AlTeCl7 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of two AlTeCl7 sheets oriented in the (0, 0, 1) direction. Al3+ is bonded to four Cl1- atoms to form AlCl4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent TeCl6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 52–66°. There are a spread of Al–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.12–2.19 Å. Te4+ is bonded to six Cl1- atoms to form distorted TeCl6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent AlCl4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Te–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.33–3.17 Å. There are seven inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a distorted single-bond geometry to one Al3+ and one Te4+ atom. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a distorted single-bond geometry to one Al3+ and one Te4+ atom. In the third Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a single-bond geometry to one Te4+ atom. In the fourth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a single-bond geometry to one Te4+ atom. In the fifth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a single-bond geometry to one Te4+ atom. In the sixth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in amore » single-bond geometry to one Al3+ atom. In the seventh Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a distorted single-bond geometry to one Al3+ and one Te4+ atom.« less
