Title: Materials Data on Zn2SiO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Zn2SiO4 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Zn2+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form ZnO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four equivalent ZnO4 tetrahedra and corners with four equivalent SiO4 tetrahedra. There are three shorter (1.99 Å) and one longer (2.01 Å) Zn–O bond lengths. Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with eight equivalent ZnO4 tetrahedra. There is one shorter (1.64 Å) and three longer (1.65 Å) Si–O bond length. There are three inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two equivalent Zn2+ and one Si4+ atom.
