Title: Materials Data on La9In5S21 by Materials Project

Abstract

La9In5S21 crystallizes in the trigonal R3 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent La3+ sites. In the first La3+ site, La3+ is bonded to seven S2- atoms to form distorted LaS7 pentagonal bipyramids that share a cornercorner with one InS6 octahedra, corners with three LaS7 pentagonal bipyramids, corners with two InS4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one InS6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one InS4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 38°. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.89–3.09 Å. In the second La3+ site, La3+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven S2- atoms. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.88–3.12 Å. In the third La3+ site, La3+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven S2- atoms. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.87–3.15 Å. In the fourth La3+ site, La3+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven S2- atoms. There are a spread of La–S bond distances ranging from 2.89–3.12 Å.
