Title: Materials Data on MnCr8Cu3S16 by Materials Project

Abstract

Cr8MnCu3S16 is Spinel-derived structured and crystallizes in the tetragonal P-4m2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Cr3+ sites. In the first Cr3+ site, Cr3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form CrS6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent MnS4 tetrahedra, corners with four CuS4 tetrahedra, and edges with six CrS6 octahedra. There are a spread of Cr–S bond distances ranging from 2.37–2.42 Å. In the second Cr3+ site, Cr3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form CrS6 octahedra that share a cornercorner with one MnS4 tetrahedra, corners with five CuS4 tetrahedra, and edges with six CrS6 octahedra. There are a spread of Cr–S bond distances ranging from 2.36–2.42 Å. Mn2+ is bonded to four equivalent S2- atoms to form MnS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve CrS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 58°. All Mn–S bond lengths are 2.31 Å. There are two inequivalent Cu2+ sites. In the first Cu2+ site, Cu2+ is bonded to four equivalent S2- atoms to form CuS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve CrS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 58°. All Cu–S bond lengths are 2.29 Å. In the second Cu2+ site, Cu2+ ismore » bonded to four S2- atoms to form CuS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve CrS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 56–57°. All Cu–S bond lengths are 2.28 Å. There are four inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded to three Cr3+ and one Mn2+ atom to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing SMnCr3 trigonal pyramids. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded to three Cr3+ and one Cu2+ atom to form distorted SCr3Cu trigonal pyramids that share corners with three equivalent SCr3Cu trigonal pyramids and edges with three SMnCr3 trigonal pyramids. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three equivalent Cr3+ and one Cu2+ atom. In the fourth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to three equivalent Cr3+ and one Cu2+ atom.« less
