Title: Materials Data on LaMg14Sn by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg14LaSn crystallizes in the hexagonal P-6m2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are seven inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent Sn atoms to form distorted MgMg10Sn2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent LaMg12 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen MgMg10Sn2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent SnMg12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen MgMg10Sn2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent SnMg12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eighteen MgMg10Sn2 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.20–3.32 Å. Both Mg–Sn bond lengths are 3.25 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent La atoms to form distorted MgLa2Mg10 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent SnMg12 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen MgMg10Sn2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent LaMg12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen MgLa2Mg10 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent LaMg12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eighteen MgMg10Sn2 cuboctahedra.
