Title: Materials Data on Mg2SiO4 by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg2SiO4 crystallizes in the tetragonal I-42d space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to four equivalent O2- atoms to form MgO4 tetrahedra that share corners with four equivalent MgO4 tetrahedra and corners with four equivalent SiO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.99 Å) and two longer (2.00 Å) Mg–O bond length. Si4+ is bonded to four equivalent O2- atoms to form SiO4 tetrahedra that share corners with eight equivalent MgO4 tetrahedra. All Si–O bond lengths are 1.65 Å. O2- is bonded in a trigonal planar geometry to two equivalent Mg2+ and one Si4+ atom.
