Title: Materials Data on Mg5Si9 by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg5Si9 crystallizes in the triclinic P1 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are ten inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded in a distorted bent 120 degrees geometry to one Mg and two Si atoms. The Mg–Mg bond length is 2.50 Å. There are one shorter (2.30 Å) and one longer (2.37 Å) Mg–Si bond lengths. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded in a distorted single-bond geometry to one Mg and four Si atoms. The Mg–Mg bond length is 2.39 Å. There are a spread of Mg–Si bond distances ranging from 2.16–3.18 Å. In the third Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to four Mg and four Si atoms.
