Title: Materials Data on Ca2SnS4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ca2SnS4 is Spinel-like structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Ca2+ sites. In the first Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form CaS6 octahedra that share corners with four equivalent CaS6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent SnS4 tetrahedra, edges with four CaS6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent SnS4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 53–62°. There are a spread of Ca–S bond distances ranging from 2.83–2.90 Å. In the second Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form CaS6 octahedra that share corners with eight CaS6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent SnS4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent CaS6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one SnS4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 45–62°. There are a spread of Ca–S bond distances ranging from 2.83–2.91 Å. Sn4+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form SnS4 tetrahedra that share corners with six CaS6 octahedra and edges with three CaS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 59–62°. There are a spread of Sn–S bond distances ranging from 2.39–2.44 Å. There are three inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2-more » site, S2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three Ca2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded to three Ca2+ and one Sn4+ atom to form distorted corner-sharing SCa3Sn tetrahedra. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three Ca2+ and one Sn4+ atom.« less
