Title: Materials Data on Li3Sn2(PO4)3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li3Sn2(PO4)3 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form distorted LiO6 octahedra that share corners with six PO4 tetrahedra and edges with two SnO6 octahedra. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.94–2.56 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 2.05–2.18 Å. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.88–2.32 Å. There are three inequivalent Sn3+ sites. In the first Sn3+ site, Sn3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form distorted SnO6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent PO4 tetrahedra and edges with two equivalent SnO6 octahedra. There are two shorter (2.43 Å) and four longer (2.65 Å) Sn–O bond lengths. In the second Sn3+ site, Sn3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form SnO6 octahedra that share corners with six PO4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one LiO6 octahedra, and an edgeedgemore » with one SnO6 octahedra. There are a spread of Sn–O bond distances ranging from 2.06–2.13 Å. In the third Sn3+ site, Sn3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form SnO6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent PO4 tetrahedra and edges with two equivalent LiO6 octahedra. There are two shorter (2.41 Å) and four longer (2.45 Å) Sn–O bond lengths. There are three inequivalent P5+ sites. In the first P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent LiO6 octahedra and corners with three equivalent SnO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 40–62°. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.49–1.60 Å. In the second P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with six SnO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 42–61°. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.51–1.59 Å. In the third P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent LiO6 octahedra and corners with three equivalent SnO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 40–61°. There is two shorter (1.54 Å) and two longer (1.57 Å) P–O bond length. There are nine inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two Sn3+ and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to two Li1+, one Sn3+, and one P5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to two Li1+, one Sn3+, and one P5+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted single-bond geometry to one Sn3+ and one P5+ atom. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to two Li1+ and one P5+ atom. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two Li1+ and one P5+ atom. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Sn3+, and one P5+ atom. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted bent 120 degrees geometry to one Sn3+ and one P5+ atom. In the ninth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Li1+, one Sn3+, and one P5+ atom.« less
