Title: Materials Data on Al8Zn3CdS16 by Materials Project

Abstract

CdZn3Al8S16 is Spinel-derived structured and crystallizes in the trigonal R3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Cd2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form CdS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve AlS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 60°. There are three shorter (2.46 Å) and one longer (2.48 Å) Cd–S bond lengths. There are three inequivalent Zn2+ sites. In the first Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form ZnS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve AlS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 58°. There are one shorter (2.34 Å) and three longer (2.37 Å) Zn–S bond lengths. In the second Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form ZnS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve AlS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 58°. There are one shorter (2.37 Å) and three longer (2.38 Å) Zn–S bond lengths. In the third Zn2+ site, Zn2+ is bonded to four S2- atoms to form ZnS4 tetrahedra that share corners with twelve AlS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 58°. There are one shorter (2.37 Å) and three longer (2.38 Å) Zn–S bond lengths. There are four inequivalent Al3+ sites.
