Title: Materials Data on Li3Nb6O11 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li3Nb6O11 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form LiO6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent LiO4 tetrahedra and edges with six NbO5 square pyramids. All Li–O bond lengths are 2.18 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form LiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent LiO6 octahedra and corners with nine NbO5 square pyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 64°. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.98–2.02 Å. There are two inequivalent Nb+3.17+ sites. In the first Nb+3.17+ site, Nb+3.17+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form NbO5 square pyramids that share corners with six NbO5 square pyramids, corners with three equivalent LiO4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one LiO6 octahedra, and edges with two NbO5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Nb–O bond distances ranging from 2.02–2.19 Å. In the second Nb+3.17+ site, Nb+3.17+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form NbO5 square pyramids that share corners with six NbO5 square pyramids, corners with three equivalent LiO4 tetrahedra, anmore » edgeedge with one LiO6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent NbO5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Nb–O bond distances ranging from 2.02–2.18 Å. There are five inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to two Li1+ and two Nb+3.17+ atoms. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to four Nb+3.17+ atoms. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal pyramidal geometry to one Li1+ and three Nb+3.17+ atoms. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to two Li1+ and two equivalent Nb+3.17+ atoms. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to four equivalent Nb+3.17+ atoms.« less
