Title: Materials Data on MgTe by Materials Project

Abstract

MgTe is Molybdenum Carbide MAX Phase-like structured and crystallizes in the hexagonal P6_3/mmc space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to six equivalent Te2- atoms to form a mixture of corner, edge, and face-sharing MgTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 48°. All Mg–Te bond lengths are 2.99 Å. Te2- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six equivalent Mg2+ atoms.
