Title: Materials Data on KGd(NbCl3)6 by Materials Project

Abstract

KGd(NbCl3)6 crystallizes in the trigonal R3 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. K1+ is bonded to twelve Cl1- atoms to form KCl12 cuboctahedra that share corners with three equivalent GdCl6 octahedra, corners with six NbCl5 square pyramids, edges with three equivalent NbCl5 square pyramids, and faces with three equivalent NbCl5 square pyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 51°. There are a spread of K–Cl bond distances ranging from 3.51–3.63 Å. Gd3+ is bonded to six Cl1- atoms to form GdCl6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent KCl12 cuboctahedra and corners with six NbCl5 square pyramids. There are three shorter (2.68 Å) and three longer (2.74 Å) Gd–Cl bond lengths. There are two inequivalent Nb+2.33+ sites. In the first Nb+2.33+ site, Nb+2.33+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form NbCl5 square pyramids that share a cornercorner with one KCl12 cuboctahedra, a cornercorner with one GdCl6 octahedra, corners with four NbCl5 square pyramids, and an edgeedge with one KCl12 cuboctahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 46°. There are a spread of Nb–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.46–2.70 Å. In the second Nb+2.33+ site, Nb+2.33+ is bonded to five Cl1- atoms to form NbCl5 square pyramids that share amore » cornercorner with one KCl12 cuboctahedra, a cornercorner with one GdCl6 octahedra, corners with four NbCl5 square pyramids, and a faceface with one KCl12 cuboctahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 47°. There are a spread of Nb–Cl bond distances ranging from 2.46–2.72 Å. There are six inequivalent Cl1- sites. In the first Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to one K1+ and two equivalent Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the second Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to two Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the third Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to one K1+ and two Nb+2.33+ atoms. In the fourth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one K1+, one Gd3+, and one Nb+2.33+ atom. In the fifth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a distorted bent 120 degrees geometry to one Gd3+ and one Nb+2.33+ atom. In the sixth Cl1- site, Cl1- is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to one K1+ and two equivalent Nb+2.33+ atoms.« less
