Title: Materials Data on Li3B(PO4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li3B(PO4)2 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to five O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 2.01–2.63 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form LiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four PO4 tetrahedra and an edgeedge with one LiO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.91–2.01 Å. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to four O2- atoms. There are a spread of Li–O bond distances ranging from 1.93–2.17 Å. B3+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form BO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four PO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of B–O bond distances ranging from 1.46–1.50 Å. There are two inequivalent P5+ sites. In the first P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one LiO4 tetrahedra and corners with two equivalent BO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.52 Å) and two longer (1.60 Å) P–O bond length. Inmore » the second P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent BO4 tetrahedra and corners with three equivalent LiO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.51–1.59 Å. There are eight inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to one B3+ and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one Li1+, one B3+, and one P5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Li1+ and one P5+ atom to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing OLi3P tetrahedra. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Li1+ and one P5+ atom to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing OLi3P tetrahedra. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted bent 120 degrees geometry to one Li1+, one B3+, and one P5+ atom. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Li1+ and one P5+ atom. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one Li1+, one B3+, and one P5+ atom. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to two Li1+ and one P5+ atom.« less
