Title: Materials Data on Mg7(SiO3)8 by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg7(SiO3)8 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to four O atoms. There are two shorter (2.01 Å) and two longer (2.08 Å) Mg–O bond lengths. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded to six O atoms to form MgO6 octahedra that share corners with six SiO4 tetrahedra and edges with three MgO6 octahedra. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.05–2.16 Å. In the third Mg site, Mg is bonded to six O atoms to form MgO6 octahedra that share corners with four equivalent SiO4 tetrahedra and edges with six MgO6 octahedra. There are two shorter (2.08 Å) and four longer (2.12 Å) Mg–O bond lengths. In the fourth Mg site, Mg is bonded to six O atoms to form MgO6 octahedra that share corners with four SiO4 tetrahedra and edges with five MgO6 octahedra. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.06–2.11 Å. There are two inequivalent Si sites. In the first Si site, Si is bonded to four O atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share cornersmore » with three MgO6 octahedra and corners with three SiO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 59–62°. There is two shorter (1.63 Å) and two longer (1.64 Å) Si–O bond length. In the second Si site, Si is bonded to four O atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with three MgO6 octahedra and corners with two equivalent SiO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 39–60°. There are a spread of Si–O bond distances ranging from 1.61–1.67 Å. There are seven inequivalent O sites. In the first O site, O is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si atoms. In the second O site, O is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to three Mg atoms. In the third O site, O is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si atoms. In the fourth O site, O is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two Mg and one Si atom. In the fifth O site, O is bonded to three Mg and one Si atom to form a mixture of distorted corner and edge-sharing OMg3Si tetrahedra. In the sixth O site, O is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three Mg and one Si atom. In the seventh O site, O is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si atoms.« less
