Title: Materials Data on MgSnF5 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgSnF5 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to six F1- atoms to form distorted MgF6 octahedra that share corners with five equivalent SnF6 octahedra, an edgeedge with one MgF6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one SnF6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 10–57°. There are a spread of Mg–F bond distances ranging from 1.95–2.43 Å. Sn3+ is bonded to six F1- atoms to form SnF6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent SnF6 octahedra, corners with five equivalent MgF6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one MgF6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 10–57°. There are a spread of Sn–F bond distances ranging from 2.08–2.22 Å. There are five inequivalent F1- sites. In the first F1- site, F1- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to one Mg2+ and one Sn3+ atom. In the second F1- site, F1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Mg2+ and one Sn3+ atom. In the third F1- site, F1- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to one Mg2+ and one Sn3+ atom. In the fourth F1- site, F1- is bonded in a linear geometry to one Mg2+more » and one Sn3+ atom. In the fifth F1- site, F1- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Mg2+ and two equivalent Sn3+ atoms.« less
