Title: Materials Data on MgCr2O4 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgCr2O4 is Spinel-like structured and crystallizes in the monoclinic Cm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Mg2+ sites. In the first Mg2+ site, Mg2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form MgO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three MgO6 octahedra and corners with nine CrO6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 56–61°. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 1.97–2.03 Å. In the second Mg2+ site, Mg2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form MgO6 octahedra that share corners with six CrO4 tetrahedra, edges with two MgO6 octahedra, and edges with four CrO6 octahedra. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.09–2.11 Å.
