Title: Materials Data on Ag11Hg9 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ag11Hg9 crystallizes in the trigonal P3m1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are eleven inequivalent Ag sites. In the first Ag site, Ag is bonded to twelve Ag atoms to form AgAg12 cuboctahedra that share corners with six equivalent AgAg12 cuboctahedra, corners with twelve HgAg6Hg6 cuboctahedra, edges with eighteen AgAg12 cuboctahedra, faces with two HgAg6Hg6 cuboctahedra, and faces with eighteen AgAg12 cuboctahedra. There are six shorter (2.92 Å) and six longer (3.22 Å) Ag–Ag bond lengths.
