Title: Materials Data on Ni11(GeTe2)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ni11(GeTe2)2 crystallizes in the tetragonal P4mm space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of one Ni11(GeTe2)2 sheet oriented in the (0, 0, 1) direction. there are seven inequivalent Ni sites. In the first Ni site, Ni is bonded to eight Ni, two equivalent Ge, and two equivalent Te atoms to form distorted NiNi8Ge2Te2 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent NiNi8Ge2Te2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent NiNi8Ge4 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent GeNi12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent TeNi8 hexagonal bipyramids, edges with four equivalent NiNi4Te5 square pyramids, faces with two equivalent GeNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with ten NiNi8Ge2Te2 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent TeNi8 hexagonal bipyramids, and faces with two equivalent NiNi4Te5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Ni–Ni bond distances ranging from 2.50–2.71 Å. Both Ni–Ge bond lengths are 2.49 Å. Both Ni–Te bond lengths are 2.60 Å. In the second Ni site, Ni is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to six Ni, two equivalent Ge, and two equivalent Te atoms. There are two shorter (2.51 Å) and four longer (2.62 Å) Ni–Ni bond lengths.

There are one shorter (2.51 Å) and four longer (2.62 Å) Ni–Te bond lengths. There are two inequivalent Ge sites. In the first Ge site, Ge is bonded to twelve Ni atoms to form GeNi12 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent GeNi12 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent NiNi8Ge4 cuboctahedra, and faces with four equivalent GeNi12 cuboctahedra.
