Title: Materials Data on MgCu2(PO4)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

MgCu2(PO4)2 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form MgO5 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with five PO4 tetrahedra and an edgeedge with one CuO5 trigonal bipyramid. There are a spread of Mg–O bond distances ranging from 2.00–2.13 Å. There are two inequivalent Cu2+ sites. In the first Cu2+ site, Cu2+ is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to four O2- atoms. There are a spread of Cu–O bond distances ranging from 1.94–2.05 Å. In the second Cu2+ site, Cu2+ is bonded to five O2- atoms to form CuO5 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with five PO4 tetrahedra and an edgeedge with one MgO5 trigonal bipyramid. There are a spread of Cu–O bond distances ranging from 2.00–2.26 Å. There are two inequivalent P5+ sites. In the first P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share corners with two equivalent CuO5 trigonal bipyramids and corners with three equivalent MgO5 trigonal bipyramids. There are a spread of P–O bond distances ranging from 1.52–1.59 Å. In the second P5+ site, P5+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form PO4 tetrahedra that share cornersmore » with two equivalent MgO5 trigonal bipyramids and corners with three equivalent CuO5 trigonal bipyramids. There is one shorter (1.53 Å) and three longer (1.56 Å) P–O bond length. There are eight inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Mg2+, one Cu2+, and one P5+ atom. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to one Mg2+, one Cu2+, and one P5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to one Mg2+, one Cu2+, and one P5+ atom. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to two Cu2+ and one P5+ atom. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal planar geometry to two Cu2+ and one P5+ atom. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to one Mg2+, one Cu2+, and one P5+ atom. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to one Mg2+ and one P5+ atom. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 120 degrees geometry to one Cu2+ and one P5+ atom.« less
