Title: Materials Data on YEr2Al9 by Materials Project

Abstract

Er2YAl9 crystallizes in the hexagonal P-6m2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent Er sites. In the first Er site, Er is bonded to twelve Al atoms to form ErAl12 cuboctahedra that share corners with six equivalent ErAl12 cuboctahedra, corners with six YAl12 cuboctahedra, edges with twelve AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra, faces with six ErAl12 cuboctahedra, and faces with six AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra. There are six shorter (2.96 Å) and six longer (3.06 Å) Er–Al bond lengths. In the second Er site, Er is bonded to twelve Al atoms to form ErAl12 cuboctahedra that share corners with six equivalent ErAl12 cuboctahedra, corners with twelve AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra, edges with six equivalent AlY2Er2Al8 cuboctahedra, faces with two ErAl12 cuboctahedra, faces with six YAl12 cuboctahedra, and faces with six equivalent AlY2Er2Al8 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Er–Al bond distances ranging from 3.05–3.08 Å. In the third Er site, Er is bonded to twelve Al atoms to form ErAl12 cuboctahedra that share corners with six equivalent ErAl12 cuboctahedra, corners with twelve AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra, edges with six equivalent AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra, faces with three equivalent YAl12 cuboctahedra, faces with five ErAl12 cuboctahedra, and faces with six equivalent AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra.

There are two shorter (2.75 Å) and four longer (2.92 Å) Al–Al bond lengths. In the fifth Al site, Al is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to four Er and six Al atoms. There are two shorter (2.75 Å) and two longer (2.92 Å) Al–Al bond lengths.

All Al–Al bond lengths are 3.05 Å. In the seventh Al site, Al is bonded to three Er, one Y, and eight Al atoms to form distorted AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra that share corners with four ErAl12 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent YAl12 cuboctahedra, edges with four ErAl12 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra, a faceface with one YAl12 cuboctahedra, faces with three ErAl12 cuboctahedra, and faces with six AlYEr3Al8 cuboctahedra. There are two shorter (3.04 Å) and two longer (3.06 Å) Al–Al bond lengths.« less
