Title: Materials Data on Mg14NbGa by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg14NbGa crystallizes in the hexagonal P-6m2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are seven inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent Nb atoms to form MgMg10Nb2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent GaMg12 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen MgMg10Nb2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent NbMg12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen MgMg10Nb2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent NbMg12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eighteen MgMg10Nb2 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.09–3.17 Å. Both Mg–Nb bond lengths are 3.14 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded to ten Mg and two equivalent Ga atoms to form distorted MgMg10Ga2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent NbMg12 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen MgMg10Nb2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent GaMg12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen MgMg10Ga2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent GaMg12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eighteen MgMg10Nb2 cuboctahedra. There are four shorter (3.13 Å) and six longer (3.14 Å) Mg–Mg bond lengths. Both Mg–Ga bond lengths are 3.14 Å.
