Title: Materials Data on Mg(CoO2)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgCo2O4 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 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 CoO6 octahedra, edges with three CoO6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent MgO5 square pyramids, and a faceface with one CoO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 6–60°. There are two shorter (2.01 Å) and three longer (2.04 Å) Mg–O bond lengths. In the second Mg2+ site, Mg2+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form MgO5 square pyramids that share corners with six CoO6 octahedra, edges with three CoO6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent MgO5 square pyramids, and a faceface with one CoO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 6–60°. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.01–2.04 Å. There are four inequivalent Co3+ sites. In the first Co3+ site, Co3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form CoO6 octahedra that share corners with four CoO6 octahedra, corners with two equivalent MgO5 square pyramids, edges with four CoO6 octahedra, and edges with three MgO5 square pyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles rangemore » from 50–59°. There are a spread of Co–O bond distances ranging from 1.85–2.13 Å. In the second Co3+ site, Co3+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form CoO6 octahedra that share corners with four CoO6 octahedra, corners with four MgO5 square pyramids, edges with four CoO6 octahedra, and a faceface with one MgO5 square pyramid.

The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 50–59°. There are a spread of Co–O bond distances ranging from 1.84–2.12 Å. There are eight inequivalent O2- sites.
