Title: Materials Data on MgO by Materials Project

Abstract

MgO crystallizes in the cubic Pm-3n space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mg2+ is bonded to four equivalent O2- atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing MgO4 tetrahedra. All Mg–O bond lengths are 1.99 Å. O2- is bonded to four equivalent Mg2+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing OMg4 tetrahedra.
