Title: Materials Data on Mg2P by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg2P crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmc2_1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded in a distorted square co-planar geometry to four equivalent P atoms. There are two shorter (2.71 Å) and two longer (2.72 Å) Mg–P bond lengths. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four equivalent P atoms. There are a spread of Mg–P bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.93 Å. P is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Mg atoms.
