Title: Materials Data on Hg8Bi3As4Cl13 by Materials Project

Abstract

Hg8Bi3As4Cl13 crystallizes in the trigonal P3_121 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are nine inequivalent Hg2+ sites. In the first Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two As3- and four Cl1- atoms to form distorted HgAs2Cl4 pentagonal pyramids that share a cornercorner with one HgAs2Cl4 octahedra and corners with four BiCl6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 47–68°. There are one shorter (2.56 Å) and one longer (2.58 Å) Hg–As bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–Cl bond distances ranging from 3.18–3.48 Å. In the second Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted see-saw-like geometry to two As3- and two Cl1- atoms. Both Hg–As bond lengths are 2.55 Å. There are one shorter (3.16 Å) and one longer (3.17 Å) Hg–Cl bond lengths. In the third Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted square co-planar geometry to two equivalent As3- and two equivalent Cl1- atoms. Both Hg–As bond lengths are 2.54 Å. Both Hg–Cl bond lengths are 3.49 Å. In the fourth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to two As3- and two Cl1- atoms. There are one shorter (2.53 Å) and one longer (2.56 Å) Hg–As bond lengths.more » There are one shorter (3.40 Å) and one longer (3.42 Å) Hg–Cl bond lengths.
