Title: Materials Data on Al2O3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Al2O3 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Al3+ sites. In the first Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form AlO5 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with four equivalent AlO4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one AlO4 tetrahedra, and edges with two equivalent AlO5 trigonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Al–O bond distances ranging from 1.82–2.02 Å. In the second Al3+ site, Al3+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form AlO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent AlO4 tetrahedra, corners with four equivalent AlO5 trigonal bipyramids, and an edgeedge with one AlO5 trigonal bipyramid. There are a spread of Al–O bond distances ranging from 1.76–1.79 Å. There are three inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to three Al3+ atoms. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to three Al3+ atoms. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted T-shaped geometry to three Al3+ atoms.
