Title: Materials Data on ZnFe3(SnS4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Fe3Zn(SnS4)2 is Spinel-derived structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Imm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Fe+2.67+ sites. In the first Fe+2.67+ site, Fe+2.67+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form FeS6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent FeS4 tetrahedra, corners with three equivalent ZnS4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent FeS6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent SnS6 octahedra. There are a spread of Fe–S bond distances ranging from 2.29–2.36 Å. In the second Fe+2.67+ site, Fe+2.67+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form FeS4 tetrahedra that share corners with six equivalent FeS6 octahedra and corners with six equivalent SnS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 46–66°. There are two shorter (2.29 Å) and two longer (2.38 Å) Fe–S bond lengths. Zn2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form ZnS4 tetrahedra that share corners with six equivalent FeS6 octahedra and corners with six equivalent SnS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 48–68°. There are two shorter (2.38 Å) and two longer (2.41 Å) Zn–S bond lengths. Sn3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form SnS6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent FeS4 tetrahedra, corners with threemore » equivalent ZnS4 tetrahedra, edges with two equivalent SnS6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent FeS6 octahedra. There are a spread of Sn–S bond distances ranging from 2.56–2.60 Å. There are four inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to one Fe+2.67+, one Zn2+, and two equivalent Sn3+ atoms. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded to two equivalent Fe+2.67+, one Zn2+, and one Sn3+ atom to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing SZnFe2Sn trigonal pyramids. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to two Fe+2.67+ and two equivalent Sn3+ atoms. In the fourth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three Fe+2.67+ and one Sn3+ atom.« less
