Title: Materials Data on Li2UBr6 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li2UBr6 is trigonal omega-derived structured and crystallizes in the monoclinic P2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are eight inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six Br1- atoms to form LiBr6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent LiBr6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent LiBr6 octahedra, and edges with three UBr6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 7°. There are a spread of Li–Br bond distances ranging from 2.77–2.86 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six Br1- atoms to form LiBr6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent LiBr6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent LiBr6 octahedra, and edges with three UBr6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 6°. There are two shorter (2.78 Å) and four longer (2.84 Å) Li–Br bond lengths. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six Br1- atoms to form LiBr6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent LiBr6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent LiBr6 octahedra, and edges with three UBr6 octahedra.
