Title: Materials Data on Sn5Ge2(SbTe5)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Sn5Ge2(SbTe5)2 is Caswellsilverite-derived structured and crystallizes in the trigonal R3m space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of three Sn5Ge2(SbTe5)2 sheets oriented in the (0, 0, 1) direction. there are five inequivalent Sn+3.60+ sites. In the first Sn+3.60+ site, Sn+3.60+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form SnTe6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent SnTe6 octahedra, corners with three equivalent GeTe6 octahedra, edges with three equivalent GeTe6 octahedra, and edges with nine SnTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 8–13°. There are three shorter (3.03 Å) and three longer (3.43 Å) Sn–Te bond lengths. In the second Sn+3.60+ site, Sn+3.60+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing SnTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 8°. There are three shorter (3.02 Å) and three longer (3.36 Å) Sn–Te bond lengths. In the third Sn+3.60+ site, Sn+3.60+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing SnTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 8–9°. There are three shorter (3.01 Å) and three longer (3.33 Å) Sn–Te bond lengths. In the fourth Sn+3.60+ site, Sn+3.60+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to formmore » a mixture of corner and edge-sharing SnTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 9–10°. There are three shorter (3.01 Å) and three longer (3.36 Å) Sn–Te bond lengths. In the fifth Sn+3.60+ site, Sn+3.60+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing SnTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 10°.

The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 3–5°. There are three shorter (3.10 Å) and three longer (3.18 Å) Sb–Te bond lengths. There are ten inequivalent Te2- sites. In the first Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to six Ge4+ atoms to form TeGe6 octahedra that share corners with six TeGe3Sb3 octahedra and edges with twelve TeGe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 10–11°. In the second Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to three equivalent Ge4+ and three equivalent Sb3- atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing TeGe3Sb3 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 2–10°. In the third Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to six Sb3- atoms to form TeSb6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent TeGe3Sb3 octahedra and edges with nine TeSb6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 2°. In the fourth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three equivalent Sb3- atoms. In the fifth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three equivalent Sn+3.60+ atoms.

In the seventh Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to six Sn+3.60+ atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing TeSn6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 8°. In the eighth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to six Sn+3.60+ atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing TeSn6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 8–9°. In the ninth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to three equivalent Sn+3.60+ and three equivalent Ge4+ atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing TeSn3Ge3 octahedra.
