Title: Materials Data on LaNb3O9 by Materials Project

Abstract

LaNb3O9 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent La3+ sites. In the first La3+ site, La3+ is bonded to twelve O2- atoms to form LaO12 cuboctahedra that share corners with three LaO12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent LaO12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eight NbO6 octahedra. There are a spread of La–O bond distances ranging from 2.60–2.88 Å. In the second La3+ site, La3+ is bonded to twelve O2- atoms to form LaO12 cuboctahedra that share corners with three LaO12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent LaO12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eight NbO6 octahedra. There are a spread of La–O bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.87 Å. There are six inequivalent Nb5+ sites.
