Title: Materials Data on Li(Mo3S4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li1Mo6S8 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Li1+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form distorted LiS4 trigonal pyramids that share corners with twelve MoS5 square pyramids and an edgeedge with one MoS5 square pyramid. There are a spread of Li–S bond distances ranging from 2.48–2.59 Å. There are six inequivalent Mo+2.50+ sites. In the first Mo+2.50+ site, Mo+2.50+ is bonded to five S2- atoms to form MoS5 square pyramids that share corners with four MoS5 square pyramids, corners with two equivalent LiS4 trigonal pyramids, and edges with five MoS5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Mo–S bond distances ranging from 2.42–2.48 Å. In the second Mo+2.50+ site, Mo+2.50+ is bonded to five S2- atoms to form MoS5 square pyramids that share corners with four MoS5 square pyramids, corners with two equivalent LiS4 trigonal pyramids, and edges with five MoS5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Mo–S bond distances ranging from 2.44–2.47 Å. In the third Mo+2.50+ site, Mo+2.50+ is bonded to five S2- atoms to form MoS5 square pyramids that share corners with four MoS5 square pyramids, corners with two equivalent LiS4 trigonal pyramids, and edges with five MoS5 square pyramids.more » There are a spread of Mo–S bond distances ranging from 2.44–2.47 Å.

There are a spread of Mo–S bond distances ranging from 2.43–2.50 Å. In the sixth Mo+2.50+ site, Mo+2.50+ is bonded to five S2- atoms to form MoS5 square pyramids that share corners with four MoS5 square pyramids, a cornercorner with one LiS4 trigonal pyramid, and edges with five MoS5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Mo–S bond distances ranging from 2.44–2.48 Å. There are eight inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the fourth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to one Li1+ and three Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the fifth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to one Li1+ and four Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the sixth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to one Li1+ and three Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the seventh S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to one Li1+ and four Mo+2.50+ atoms. In the eighth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four Mo+2.50+ atoms.« less
