Title: Materials Data on Al2O3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Al2O3 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmc2_1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Al3+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing AlO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Al–O bond distances ranging from 1.69–1.82 Å. There are two inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Al3+ atoms. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to three equivalent Al3+ atoms.
