Title: Materials Data on Sm4(TmS2)11 by Materials Project

Abstract

Sm4(TmS2)11 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Tm3+ sites. In the first Tm3+ site, Tm3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing TmS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 48–59°. There are a spread of Tm–S bond distances ranging from 2.61–2.75 Å. In the second Tm3+ site, Tm3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing TmS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 48–59°. There are a spread of Tm–S bond distances ranging from 2.63–2.74 Å. In the third Tm3+ site, Tm3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form TmS6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent TmS6 octahedra, a cornercorner with one TmS7 pentagonal bipyramid, edges with four equivalent TmS6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent TmS7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 51–63°. There are a spread of Tm–S bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.74 Å.
