Title: Materials Data on MgF2 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgF2 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to seven F1- atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing MgF7 pentagonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Mg–F bond distances ranging from 2.01–2.18 Å. There are two inequivalent F1- sites. In the first F1- site, F1- is bonded in a distorted square co-planar geometry to four equivalent Mg2+ atoms. In the second F1- site, F1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three equivalent Mg2+ atoms.
