Title: Materials Data on Nb6SnS8 by Materials Project

Abstract

Nb6SnS8 crystallizes in the trigonal P-3 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Nb2+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form a mixture of face, edge, and corner-sharing NbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 44–55°. There are a spread of Nb–S bond distances ranging from 2.48–2.68 Å. Sn4+ is bonded in a distorted hexagonal planar geometry to six equivalent S2- atoms. All Sn–S bond lengths are 3.17 Å. There are two inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four equivalent Nb2+ and one Sn4+ atom. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded to six equivalent Nb2+ atoms to form distorted face-sharing SNb6 pentagonal pyramids.
