Title: Materials Data on LiMg6Cu by Materials Project

Abstract

LiMg6Cu crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Li is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent Cu atoms to form LiMg10Cu2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent CuLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra, corners with six equivalent LiMg10Cu2 cuboctahedra, corners with eight MgLi2Mg8Cu2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent CuLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen MgLi2Mg8Cu2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent LiMg10Cu2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent CuLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra, and faces with sixteen MgLi2Mg8Cu2 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Li–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.00–3.07 Å. Both Li–Cu bond lengths are 3.11 Å. There are seven inequivalent Mg sites.
