Title: Materials Data on TaAl2Ni9 by Materials Project

Abstract

TaNi9Al2 is Uranium Silicide-derived structured and crystallizes in the tetragonal P4/mmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ta is bonded to twelve Ni atoms to form TaNi12 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, corners with eight equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with twenty-four NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with twelve NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra. There are four shorter (2.55 Å) and eight longer (2.57 Å) Ta–Ni bond lengths. There are six inequivalent Ni sites. In the first Ni site, Ni is bonded to four equivalent Ta and eight Ni atoms to form distorted NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra. All Ni–Ni bond lengths are 2.57 Å. In the second Ni site, Ni is bonded to eight Ni and four equivalent Al atoms to form NiAl4Ni8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra. Allmore » Ni–Ni bond lengths are 2.51 Å. All Ni–Al bond lengths are 2.55 Å. In the third Ni site, Ni is bonded to two equivalent Ta, eight Ni, and two equivalent Al atoms to form distorted NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra. All Ni–Ni bond lengths are 2.55 Å. Both Ni–Al bond lengths are 2.54 Å. In the fourth Ni site, Ni is bonded to eight Ni and four equivalent Al atoms to form distorted NiAl4Ni8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen NiAl4Ni8 cuboctahedra. All Ni–Ni bond lengths are 2.55 Å. All Ni–Al bond lengths are 2.48 Å. In the fifth Ni site, Ni is bonded to two equivalent Ta, eight Ni, and two equivalent Al atoms to form distorted NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra. All Ni–Ni bond lengths are 2.55 Å. Both Ni–Al bond lengths are 2.54 Å. In the sixth Ni site, Ni is bonded to two equivalent Ta, eight Ni, and two equivalent Al atoms to form distorted NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve NiTa2Al2Ni8 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent TaNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent AlNi12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen NiTa4Ni8 cuboctahedra. Both Ni–Ni bond lengths are 2.51 Å. Both Ni–Al bond lengths are 2.54 Å.
