Title: Materials Data on ZrIn3 by Materials Project

Abstract

ZrIn3 is Uranium Silicide-like structured and crystallizes in the tetragonal I4/mmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Zr is bonded to twelve In atoms to form ZrIn12 cuboctahedra that share corners with eight equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen InZr4In8 cuboctahedra, faces with five equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, and faces with eight InZr4In8 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Zr–In bond distances ranging from 3.10–3.34 Å. There are three inequivalent In sites. In the first In site, In is bonded in a distorted rectangular see-saw-like geometry to four equivalent Zr and eight In atoms. All In–In bond lengths are 3.25 Å. In the second In site, In is bonded to four equivalent Zr and eight In atoms to form distorted InZr4In8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve InZr4In8 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent InZr4In8 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, and faces with ten InZr4In8 cuboctahedra. All In–In bond lengths are 3.10 Å. In the third In site, In is bonded to four equivalent Zr and eight In atoms to form InZr4In8 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve InZr4In8 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, edges withmore » eight equivalent InZr4In8 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent ZrIn12 cuboctahedra, and faces with ten InZr4In8 cuboctahedra. All In–In bond lengths are 3.10 Å.« less
