Title: Materials Data on KMg3AlGe3(O5F)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

KMg3AlGe3(O5F)2 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. K1+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form KO6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent AlO4 tetrahedra and corners with nine GeO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of K–O bond distances ranging from 2.71–3.04 Å. There are three inequivalent Mg2+ sites.
