Title: Materials Data on Ca2SnS4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ca2SnS4 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ca2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form distorted CaS6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent SnS6 octahedra, edges with six equivalent CaS6 octahedra, and a faceface with one SnS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 44–58°. There are a spread of Ca–S bond distances ranging from 2.72–2.98 Å. Sn4+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form SnS6 octahedra that share corners with twelve equivalent CaS6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent SnS6 octahedra, and faces with two equivalent CaS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 44–58°. There are two shorter (2.46 Å) and four longer (2.72 Å) Sn–S bond lengths. There are two inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three equivalent Ca2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to three equivalent Ca2+ and two equivalent Sn4+ atoms.
