Title: Materials Data on ZnHg3Se3Br2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Hg3ZnSe3Br2 crystallizes in the triclinic P-1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Hg2+ sites. In the first Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to two equivalent Se2- and two equivalent Br1- atoms. Both Hg–Se bond lengths are 2.58 Å. Both Hg–Br bond lengths are 3.24 Å. In the second Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to two equivalent Se2- and two equivalent Br1- atoms. Both Hg–Se bond lengths are 2.54 Å. Both Hg–Br bond lengths are 3.34 Å. In the third Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted square co-planar geometry to four Br1- atoms. There are two shorter (2.48 Å) and two longer (3.25 Å) Hg–Br bond lengths. In the fourth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted linear geometry to two equivalent Se2- and two equivalent Br1- atoms. Both Hg–Se bond lengths are 2.52 Å. Both Hg–Br bond lengths are 3.55 Å. In the fifth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded to two equivalent Se2- and four Br1- atoms to form distorted HgSe2Br4 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent ZnSe4 tetrahedra. Both Hg–Se bond lengths are 3.30 Å. There are two shorter (2.59 Å)more » and two longer (3.07 Å) Hg–Br bond lengths. In the sixth Hg2+ site, Hg2+ is bonded in a distorted square co-planar geometry to two equivalent Se2- and two equivalent Br1- atoms. Both Hg–Se bond lengths are 2.54 Å. Both Hg–Br bond lengths are 3.38 Å. Zn2+ is bonded to four Se2- atoms to form ZnSe4 tetrahedra that share a cornercorner with one HgSe2Br4 octahedra and an edgeedge with one ZnSe4 tetrahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 74°. There are a spread of Zn–Se bond distances ranging from 2.46–2.63 Å. There are three inequivalent Se2- sites. In the first Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a distorted trigonal non-coplanar geometry to one Hg2+ and two equivalent Zn2+ atoms. In the second Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two Hg2+ and one Zn2+ atom. In the third Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to two Hg2+ and one Zn2+ atom. There are two inequivalent Br1- sites. In the first Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to four Hg2+ atoms. In the second Br1- site, Br1- is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to four Hg2+ atoms.« less
