Abstract

Mg3(Cu2Al)2 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four Mg, eight Cu, and four Al atoms. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.05–3.13 Å. There are a spread of Mg–Cu bond distances ranging from 2.92–2.99 Å. There are a spread of Mg–Al bond distances ranging from 2.98–3.02 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four Mg, seven Cu, and five Al atoms. The Mg–Mg bond length is 3.17 Å. There are a spread of Mg–Cu bond distances ranging from 2.94–2.99 Å. There are a spread of Mg–Al bond distances ranging from 2.95–3.01 Å. In the third Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four Mg, nine Cu, and three equivalent Al atoms. There are one shorter (3.05 Å) and two longer (3.12 Å) Mg–Mg bond lengths. There are a spread of Mg–Cu bond distances ranging from 2.93–2.99 Å. There are one shorter (2.98 Å) and two longer (3.00 Å) Mg–Al bond lengths. There are five inequivalent Cu sites.
