Title: Materials Data on Ho3InS6 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ho3InS6 crystallizes in the orthorhombic P2_12_12 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are three inequivalent Ho3+ sites. In the first Ho3+ site, Ho3+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of Ho–S bond distances ranging from 2.79–2.90 Å. In the second Ho3+ site, Ho3+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight S2- atoms. There are a spread of Ho–S bond distances ranging from 2.75–3.04 Å. In the third Ho3+ site, Ho3+ is bonded to seven S2- atoms to form distorted HoS7 pentagonal bipyramids that share edges with two equivalent InS6 octahedra and edges with two equivalent HoS7 pentagonal bipyramids. There are a spread of Ho–S bond distances ranging from 2.73–2.89 Å. There are two inequivalent In3+ sites. In the first In3+ site, In3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form InS6 octahedra that share edges with two equivalent InS6 octahedra and edges with four equivalent HoS7 pentagonal bipyramids. There are a spread of In–S bond distances ranging from 2.60–2.63 Å. In the second In3+ site, In3+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six S2- atoms. There are a spread of In–S bond distances ranging from 2.47–3.19 Å. There aremore » six inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to five Ho3+ atoms. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded to three Ho3+ and two equivalent In3+ atoms to form distorted SHo3In2 trigonal bipyramids that share corners with four equivalent SHo3In2 trigonal bipyramids, corners with three equivalent SHo3In trigonal pyramids, edges with four equivalent SHo4In square pyramids, and an edgeedge with one SHo3In2 trigonal bipyramid. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to three Ho3+ and two equivalent In3+ atoms. In the fourth S2- site, S2- is bonded to four Ho3+ and one In3+ atom to form distorted SHo4In square pyramids that share a cornercorner with one SHo4In square pyramid, corners with two equivalent SHo3In trigonal pyramids, edges with two equivalent SHo4In square pyramids, and edges with four equivalent SHo3In2 trigonal bipyramids. In the fifth S2- site, S2- is bonded to three Ho3+ and one In3+ atom to form distorted SHo3In trigonal pyramids that share corners with two equivalent SHo4In square pyramids, corners with three equivalent SHo3In2 trigonal bipyramids, and corners with three equivalent SHo3In trigonal pyramids. In the sixth S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to five Ho3+ atoms.« less
