Title: Materials Data on Li2Nb(PO4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li2Nb(PO4)2 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Li1+ is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to four O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.85–2.32 Å. Nb4+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form NbO6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent PO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Nb–O bond distances ranging from 2.07–2.11 Å. P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three equivalent NbO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 45–48°. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.50–1.58 Å. There are four inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Nb4+, and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a linear geometry to one Li1+ and one P5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Li1+, one Nb4+, and one P5+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Li1+, one Nb4+, and one P5+ atom.
