Title: Materials Data on Cu4IBr3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Cu4IBr3 is Caswellsilverite-like structured and crystallizes in the trigonal R-3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Cu1+ sites. In the first Cu1+ site, Cu1+ is bonded to six Br1- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing CuBr6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–2°. There are three shorter (2.70 Å) and three longer (2.73 Å) Cu–Br bond lengths. In the second Cu1+ site, Cu1+ is bonded to three equivalent I1- and three equivalent Br1- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing CuI3Br3 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–2°. All Cu–I bond lengths are 2.76 Å. All Cu–Br bond lengths are 2.75 Å. I1- is bonded to six equivalent Cu1+ atoms to form ICu6 octahedra that share corners with six equivalent BrCu6 octahedra, edges with six equivalent ICu6 octahedra, and edges with six equivalent BrCu6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 0°. There are two inequivalent Br1- sites. In the first Br1- site, Br1- is bonded to six Cu1+ atoms to form BrCu6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent ICu6 octahedra, corners with three equivalent BrCu6 octahedra, edges with three equivalent ICu6 octahedra, and edges withmore » nine BrCu6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–1°. In the second Br1- site, Br1- is bonded to six equivalent Cu1+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing BrCu6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 1°.« less
