Title: Materials Data on KBaMg6 by Materials Project

Abstract

KBaMg6 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. K is bonded to two equivalent Ba and ten Mg atoms to form distorted KBa2Mg10 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent BaK2Mg10 cuboctahedra, corners with six equivalent KBa2Mg10 cuboctahedra, corners with eight equivalent MgK2Ba2Mg8 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent BaK2Mg10 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent MgK2Ba2Mg8 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent KBa2Mg10 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent BaK2Mg10 cuboctahedra, and faces with four equivalent MgK2Ba2Mg8 cuboctahedra. Both K–Ba bond lengths are 3.46 Å. There are a spread of K–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.65–3.98 Å. Ba is bonded to two equivalent K and ten Mg atoms to form distorted BaK2Mg10 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent KBa2Mg10 cuboctahedra, corners with six equivalent BaK2Mg10 cuboctahedra, corners with eight equivalent MgK2Ba2Mg8 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent KBa2Mg10 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent MgK2Ba2Mg8 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent KBa2Mg10 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent BaK2Mg10 cuboctahedra, and faces with four equivalent MgK2Ba2Mg8 cuboctahedra.
