Title: Materials Data on LiFePO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

LiFePO4 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to three O2- atoms. There is one shorter (1.88 Å) and two longer (1.89 Å) Li–O bond length. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to five O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 2.05–2.68 Å. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form distorted LiO5 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with five FeO4 tetrahedra and corners with five PO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 2.06–2.47 Å. There are three inequivalent Fe2+ sites. In the first Fe2+ site, Fe2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form FeO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four PO4 tetrahedra and corners with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Fe–O bond distances ranging from 2.00–2.07 Å. In the second Fe2+ site, Fe2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form FeO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four PO4 tetrahedra and a cornercorner with one LiO5 trigonal bipyramid.more » There are a spread of Fe–O bond distances ranging from 2.01–2.07 Å. In the third Fe2+ site, Fe2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form FeO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four PO4 tetrahedra and corners with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids. There are three shorter (2.03 Å) and one longer (2.06 Å) Fe–O bond lengths. There are three inequivalent P5+ sites. In the first P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four FeO4 tetrahedra and corners with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.55–1.57 Å. In the second P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four FeO4 tetrahedra and corners with two equivalent LiO5 trigonal bipyramids. There is one shorter (1.55 Å) and three longer (1.56 Å) P–O bond length. In the third P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four FeO4 tetrahedra and a cornercorner with one LiO5 trigonal bipyramid. There is one shorter (1.55 Å) and three longer (1.56 Å) P–O bond length. There are twelve inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the ninth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the tenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the eleventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to two Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom. In the twelfth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Li1+, one Fe2+, and one P5+ atom.« less
