Title: Materials Data on Mn2GeS4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Mn2GeS4 is Spinel-like structured and crystallizes in the monoclinic Pm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Mn2+ sites. In the first Mn2+ site, Mn2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form MnS6 octahedra that share corners with eight MnS6 octahedra, corners with four GeS4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent MnS6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one GeS4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 47–56°. There are a spread of Mn–S bond distances ranging from 2.50–2.64 Å. In the second Mn2+ site, Mn2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form MnS6 octahedra that share corners with eight MnS6 octahedra, corners with four GeS4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent MnS6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one GeS4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 47–56°. There are a spread of Mn–S bond distances ranging from 2.50–2.64 Å.
