Title: Materials Data on PuMg by Materials Project

Abstract

MgPu is beta-prime cadmium gold structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pmma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg is bonded to four equivalent Mg and eight equivalent Pu atoms to form MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra that share corners with eight equivalent PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra, corners with ten equivalent MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra, edges with six equivalent MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra, edges with twelve equivalent PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra, faces with eight equivalent PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra, and faces with twelve equivalent MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra. There are two shorter (3.05 Å) and two longer (3.20 Å) Mg–Mg bond lengths. There are four shorter (3.39 Å) and four longer (3.43 Å) Mg–Pu bond lengths. Pu is bonded to eight equivalent Mg and four equivalent Pu atoms to form PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra that share corners with eight equivalent MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra, corners with ten equivalent PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra, edges with six equivalent PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra, edges with twelve equivalent MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra, faces with eight equivalent MgPu8Mg4 cuboctahedra, and faces with twelve equivalent PuPu4Mg8 cuboctahedra. There are two shorter (3.05 Å) and two longer (3.20 Å) Pu–Pu bond lengths.
