Title: Materials Data on Ca3Ga2(Ge2O7)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ca3Ga2Ge4O14 crystallizes in the monoclinic C2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Ca2+ sites. In the first Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to eight O2- atoms. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.36–2.94 Å. In the second Ca2+ site, Ca2+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight O2- atoms. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.34–2.83 Å. Ga3+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted GaO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent GeO6 octahedra and corners with two equivalent GeO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 63–68°. There are a spread of Ga–O bond distances ranging from 1.85–1.91 Å. There are three inequivalent Ge4+ sites. In the first Ge4+ site, Ge4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form distorted GeO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent GeO6 octahedra and corners with two equivalent GeO4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 64°. There is two shorter (1.77 Å) and two longer (1.83 Å) Ge–O bond length. In the second Ge4+ site, Ge4+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form GeO6 octahedra that share corners withmore » two equivalent GeO4 tetrahedra and corners with four equivalent GaO4 tetrahedra. There is four shorter (1.90 Å) and two longer (2.02 Å) Ge–O bond length. In the third Ge4+ site, Ge4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form GeO4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one GeO4 tetrahedra and corners with two equivalent GaO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Ge–O bond distances ranging from 1.72–1.82 Å. There are seven inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Ca2+ and two Ge4+ atoms. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Ca2+, one Ga3+, and one Ge4+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one Ca2+, one Ga3+, and one Ge4+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded to three Ca2+ and one Ge4+ atom to form distorted corner-sharing OCa3Ge tetrahedra. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two Ca2+ and two Ge4+ atoms. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Ca2+, one Ga3+, and one Ge4+ atom. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two Ca2+, one Ga3+, and one Ge4+ atom.« less
