Title: Materials Data on CdCl2 by Materials Project

Abstract

CdCl2 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of one CdCl2 sheet oriented in the (0, 0, 1) direction. Cd2+ is bonded to four Cl1- atoms to form corner-sharing CdCl4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Cd–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.50–2.52 Å. There are two inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to two equivalent Cd2+ atoms. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to two equivalent Cd2+ atoms.
