Title: Materials Data on Yb4PbS8 by Materials Project

Abstract

Yb4PbS8 crystallizes in the monoclinic Pm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are eight inequivalent Yb3+ sites. In the first Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded to eight S2- atoms to form distorted YbS8 hexagonal bipyramids that share corners with two equivalent YbS6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent YbS8 hexagonal bipyramids, and a faceface with one YbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 30°. There are a spread of Yb–S bond distances ranging from 2.58–3.22 Å. In the second Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six S2- atoms. There are a spread of Yb–S bond distances ranging from 2.77–2.95 Å. In the third Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form YbS6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent YbS8 hexagonal bipyramids, corners with two equivalent YbS6 octahedra, and a faceface with one YbS8 hexagonal bipyramid. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 65°. There are a spread of Yb–S bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.92 Å.
