Title: Materials Data on Y2O3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Y2O3 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Y3+ sites. In the first Y3+ site, Y3+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven O2- atoms. There are a spread of Y–O bond distances ranging from 2.24–2.60 Å. In the second Y3+ site, Y3+ is bonded to seven O2- atoms to form distorted YO7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with three YO6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent YO6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent YO7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 52–58°. There are a spread of Y–O bond distances ranging from 2.29–2.47 Å. In the third Y3+ site, Y3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form YO6 octahedra that share corners with four YO6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent YO7 pentagonal bipyramids, and edges with three YO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 14–70°. There are a spread of Y–O bond distances ranging from 2.22–2.46 Å. In the fourth Y3+ site, Y3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form YO6 octahedra that share corners with four YO6 octahedra, edges with three YO6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent YO7 pentagonal bipyramids.
