Title: Materials Data on Zn2SiO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Zn2SiO4 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Zn2+ sites. In the first Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted ZnO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent ZnO4 tetrahedra, corners with four equivalent SiO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one ZnO4 tetrahedra. There are two shorter (1.99 Å) and two longer (2.01 Å) Zn–O bond lengths. In the second Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form ZnO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent ZnO4 tetrahedra, corners with four equivalent SiO4 tetrahedra, and an edgeedge with one ZnO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Zn–O bond distances ranging from 1.97–2.11 Å. Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with eight ZnO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.65 Å) and two longer (1.66 Å) Si–O bond length. There are four inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom. Inmore » the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to two Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom.« less
