Title: Materials Data on Ca(LaI4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ca(LaI4)2 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ca2+ is bonded to six I1- atoms to form distorted CaI6 pentagonal pyramids that share corners with four equivalent LaI6 octahedra and edges with two equivalent LaI6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 32–47°. There are a spread of Ca–I bond distances ranging from 3.14–3.28 Å. La3+ is bonded to six I1- atoms to form distorted LaI6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent LaI6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent CaI6 pentagonal pyramids, an edgeedge with one LaI6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one CaI6 pentagonal pyramid. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 54°. There are a spread of La–I bond distances ranging from 3.12–3.32 Å. There are four inequivalent I1- sites. In the first I1- site, I1- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to two equivalent La3+ atoms. In the second I1- site, I1- is bonded in a water-like geometry to one Ca2+ and one La3+ atom. In the third I1- site, I1- is bonded in a distorted bent 120 degrees geometry to one Ca2+ and one La3+ atom. In the fourth I1- site, I1- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometrymore » to one Ca2+ and two equivalent La3+ atoms.« less
