Title: Materials Data on KCd4Ga5S12 by Materials Project

Abstract

KCd4Ga5S12 is Chalcostibite-derived structured and crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. K1+ is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of K–S bond distances ranging from 3.41–3.81 Å. There are four inequivalent Cd2+ sites. In the first Cd2+ site, Cd2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form CdS4 tetrahedra that share corners with three CdS4 tetrahedra and corners with five GaS4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Cd–S bond distances ranging from 2.51–2.64 Å. In the second Cd2+ site, Cd2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form CdS4 tetrahedra that share corners with three CdS4 tetrahedra and corners with five GaS4 tetrahedra.

In the fifth Ga3+ site, Ga3+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form GaS4 tetrahedra that share corners with four CdS4 tetrahedra and corners with four GaS4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Ga–S bond distances ranging from 2.27–2.36 Å. There are twelve inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two Cd2+ and one Ga3+ atom. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to two Cd2+ and one Ga3+ atom. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to one K1+ and three Cd2+ atoms. In the fourth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one K1+, two Cd2+, and one Ga3+ atom. In the fifth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one K1+, one Cd2+, and two Ga3+ atoms. In the sixth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one K1+, one Cd2+, and two Ga3+ atoms. In the seventh S2- site, S2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to three Ga3+ atoms. In the eighth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one Cd2+ and two Ga3+ atoms. In the ninth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one K1+, one Cd2+, and two Ga3+ atoms. In the tenth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one K1+, one Cd2+, and two Ga3+ atoms. In the eleventh S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one K1+, one Cd2+, and two Ga3+ atoms. In the twelfth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one K1+, one Cd2+, and two Ga3+ atoms.« less
