Title: Materials Data on Li6CuS4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li6CuS4 crystallizes in the tetragonal P4_2/nmc space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four equivalent S2- atoms to form LiS4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent CuS4 tetrahedra, corners with twelve LiS4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one CuS4 tetrahedra, and edges with four LiS4 tetrahedra. There are two shorter (2.47 Å) and two longer (2.50 Å) Li–S bond lengths. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four equivalent S2- atoms to form LiS4 tetrahedra that share corners with four equivalent CuS4 tetrahedra, corners with eight equivalent LiS4 tetrahedra, and edges with six LiS4 tetrahedra. All Li–S bond lengths are 2.42 Å. Cu2+ is bonded to four equivalent S2- atoms to form CuS4 tetrahedra that share corners with sixteen LiS4 tetrahedra and edges with four equivalent LiS4 tetrahedra. All Cu–S bond lengths are 2.34 Å. S2- is bonded to six Li1+ and one Cu2+ atom to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing SLi6Cu pentagonal bipyramids.
