Title: Materials Data on Al2CuO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

CuAl2O4 is Spinel-like structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Imma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Cu2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form CuO6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent AlO4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent CuO6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent AlO6 octahedra. There are four shorter (1.98 Å) and two longer (2.27 Å) Cu–O bond lengths. There are two inequivalent Al3+ sites. In the first Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form AlO4 tetrahedra that share corners with six equivalent CuO6 octahedra and corners with six equivalent AlO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 53–60°. There is two shorter (1.81 Å) and two longer (1.82 Å) Al–O bond length. In the second Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form AlO6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent AlO4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent AlO6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent CuO6 octahedra. There is four shorter (1.94 Å) and two longer (1.96 Å) Al–O bond length. There are two inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to two equivalent Cu2+ and two Al3+ atoms. Inmore » the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to one Cu2+ and three Al3+ atoms.« less
