Title: Materials Data on Mg6CuSi by Materials Project

Abstract

Mg6CuSi crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are seven inequivalent Mg sites. In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded to eight Mg, two equivalent Cu, and two equivalent Si atoms to form distorted MgMg8Cu2Si2 cuboctahedra that share corners with two equivalent CuMg10 cuboctahedra, corners with two equivalent SiMg10 cuboctahedra, corners with fourteen MgMg8Cu2Si2 cuboctahedra, edges with two equivalent SiMg10 cuboctahedra, edges with three equivalent CuMg10 cuboctahedra, edges with twelve MgMg8Cu2Si2 cuboctahedra, a faceface with one CuMg10 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent SiMg10 cuboctahedra, and faces with sixteen MgMg8Cu2Si2 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 2.96–3.10 Å. There are one shorter (3.01 Å) and one longer (3.05 Å) Mg–Cu bond lengths. Both Mg–Si bond lengths are 3.01 Å.
