Title: Materials Data on CdHg6(Sb2I3)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Hg6Cd(Sb2I3)2 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are seven inequivalent Hg2+ sites. In the first Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to two Sb2- and four I1- atoms. There are one shorter (2.77 Å) and one longer (2.79 Å) Hg–Sb bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–I bond distances ranging from 3.17–3.88 Å. In the second Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to two Sb2- and three I1- atoms. Both Hg–Sb bond lengths are 2.80 Å. There are two shorter (3.21 Å) and one longer (3.84 Å) Hg–I bond lengths. In the third Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two Sb2- and three I1- atoms to form distorted HgSb2I3 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with five HgSb2I4 octahedra, corners with two equivalent CdI4 tetrahedra, and corners with two SbHg3Sb tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 3–81°. There are one shorter (2.79 Å) and one longer (2.80 Å) Hg–Sb bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–I bond distances ranging from 2.99–3.58 Å. In the fourth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two equivalent Sb2- and four I1- atoms to form HgSb2I4 octahedra that share cornersmore » with two equivalent HgSb2I4 octahedra, corners with two equivalent CdI4 tetrahedra, corners with two equivalent SbHg3Sb tetrahedra, corners with two equivalent HgSb2I3 trigonal bipyramids, and edges with two equivalent HgSb2I4 octahedra.
