Title: Materials Data on MgTi2O4 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgTi2O4 crystallizes in the monoclinic Cm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Mg2+ sites. In the first Mg2+ site, Mg2+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form MgO5 square pyramids that share corners with six TiO6 octahedra, edges with three TiO6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent MgO5 square pyramids, and a faceface with one TiO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 12–57°. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.09–2.13 Å. In the second Mg2+ site, Mg2+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form MgO5 square pyramids that share corners with six TiO6 octahedra, edges with three TiO6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent MgO5 square pyramids, and a faceface with one TiO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 13–56°. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.08–2.14 Å. There are four inequivalent Ti3+ sites. In the first Ti3+ site, Ti3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form distorted TiO6 octahedra that share corners with four TiO6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent MgO5 square pyramids, edges with four TiO6 octahedra, and edges with three MgO5 square pyramids.
