Title: Materials Data on SnPb4S5 by Materials Project

Abstract

Pb4SnS5 is Caswellsilverite-like structured and crystallizes in the tetragonal I4/mmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Pb2+ sites. In the first Pb2+ site, Pb2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form PbS6 octahedra that share corners with six PbS6 octahedra, edges with four equivalent SnS6 octahedra, and edges with eight PbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–1°. There are a spread of Pb–S bond distances ranging from 2.98–3.03 Å. In the second Pb2+ site, Pb2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form PbS6 octahedra that share a cornercorner with one SnS6 octahedra, corners with five PbS6 octahedra, and edges with twelve PbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 0°. There are a spread of Pb–S bond distances ranging from 2.98–3.04 Å. In the third Pb2+ site, Pb2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form PbS6 octahedra that share corners with six PbS6 octahedra, edges with four equivalent SnS6 octahedra, and edges with eight PbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–1°. There are a spread of Pb–S bond distances ranging from 2.98–3.03 Å. Sn2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form SnS6 octahedra that share cornersmore » with two equivalent PbS6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent SnS6 octahedra, edges with four equivalent SnS6 octahedra, and edges with eight PbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 0°. There are two shorter (2.97 Å) and four longer (2.98 Å) Sn–S bond lengths. There are three inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded to two Pb2+ and four equivalent Sn2+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing SSn4Pb2 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 0°. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded to six Pb2+ atoms to form SPb6 octahedra that share corners with six SSn4Pb2 octahedra and edges with twelve SPb6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 0°. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded to five Pb2+ and one Sn2+ atom to form SSnPb5 octahedra that share corners with six SPb6 octahedra and edges with twelve SSn4Pb2 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 0–1°.« less
