Title: Materials Data on MgF2 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgF2 is Cotunnite structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven F1- atoms. There are a spread of Mg–F bond distances ranging from 2.02–2.23 Å. There are two inequivalent F1- sites. In the first F1- site, F1- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to three equivalent Mg2+ atoms. In the second F1- site, F1- is bonded to four equivalent Mg2+ atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing FMg4 tetrahedra.
