Title: Materials Data on Mg5Hg by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg5Hg crystallizes in the trigonal R32 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are nine inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent Hg atoms to form distorted MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra that share corners with eighteen MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent HgMg12 cuboctahedra, edges with fourteen MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent HgMg12 cuboctahedra, and faces with sixteen MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.14–3.18 Å. Both Mg–Hg bond lengths are 3.15 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent Hg atoms to form distorted MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra that share corners with eighteen MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent HgMg12 cuboctahedra, edges with fourteen MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent HgMg12 cuboctahedra, and faces with sixteen MgMg10Hg2 cuboctahedra.
