Title: Materials Data on Mg6GaFe by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg6FeGa crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are eight inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded to eight Mg, two equivalent Fe, and two equivalent Ga atoms to form distorted MgMg8Ga2Fe2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent FeMg10Ga2 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen MgMg8Ga2Fe2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent FeMg10Ga2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent GaMg10Fe2 cuboctahedra, edges with eight MgMg8Ga2Fe2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent FeMg10Ga2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent GaMg10Fe2 cuboctahedra, and faces with eight MgMg8Ga2Fe2 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.00–3.10 Å. There are one shorter (2.99 Å) and one longer (3.08 Å) Mg–Fe bond lengths. Both Mg–Ga bond lengths are 3.00 Å.
