Title: Materials Data on LiMg5 by Materials Project

Abstract

LiMg5 crystallizes in the monoclinic Cm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Li is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to ten Mg atoms. There are a spread of Li–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.11–3.16 Å. There are five inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded to two equivalent Li and ten Mg atoms to form distorted MgLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra that share corners with eighteen MgLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra, edges with twelve MgLi3Mg9 cuboctahedra, and faces with seventeen MgLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.09–3.23 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded to three equivalent Li and nine Mg atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing MgLi3Mg9 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.10–3.23 Å. In the third Mg site, Mg is bonded to two equivalent Li and ten Mg atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing MgLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.11–3.23 Å. In the fourth Mg site, Mg is bonded to one Li and eleven Mg atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing MgLiMg11 cuboctahedra. Theremore » are two shorter (3.15 Å) and two longer (3.23 Å) Mg–Mg bond lengths. In the fifth Mg site, Mg is bonded to two equivalent Li and ten Mg atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing MgLi2Mg10 cuboctahedra. Both Mg–Mg bond lengths are 3.23 Å.« less
