Title: Materials Data on Sm6Nb4Al43 by Materials Project

Abstract

Sm6Nb4Al43 crystallizes in the hexagonal P6_3/mcm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Sm is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to one Sm, one Nb, and fifteen Al atoms. The Sm–Sm bond length is 3.49 Å. The Sm–Nb bond length is 3.55 Å. There are a spread of Sm–Al bond distances ranging from 3.09–3.52 Å. There are two inequivalent Nb sites. In the first Nb site, Nb is bonded to twelve Al atoms to form NbAl12 cuboctahedra that share corners with six equivalent NbSm2Al10 cuboctahedra and edges with six equivalent AlNb2Al10 cuboctahedra. There are six shorter (2.73 Å) and six longer (2.90 Å) Nb–Al bond lengths. In the second Nb site, Nb is bonded to two equivalent Sm and ten Al atoms to form distorted NbSm2Al10 cuboctahedra that share corners with four NbAl12 cuboctahedra, an edgeedge with one AlNb2Al10 cuboctahedra, and faces with six AlNb2Al10 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Nb–Al bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.76 Å. There are seven inequivalent Al sites. In the first Al site, Al is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to one Sm, two Nb, and nine Al atoms. There are a spread of Al–Al bond distances ranging from 2.78–3.07 Å. In the second Almore » site, Al is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Sm, one Nb, and nine Al atoms. There are a spread of Al–Al bond distances ranging from 2.78–3.05 Å. In the third Al site, Al is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four equivalent Sm and eight Al atoms. There are a spread of Al–Al bond distances ranging from 2.82–3.14 Å. In the fourth Al site, Al is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Sm, one Nb, and nine Al atoms. There are a spread of Al–Al bond distances ranging from 2.76–3.06 Å. In the fifth Al site, Al is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Sm, one Nb, and seven Al atoms. There are two shorter (2.84 Å) and one longer (2.90 Å) Al–Al bond lengths. In the sixth Al site, Al is bonded to two equivalent Nb and ten Al atoms to form distorted AlNb2Al10 cuboctahedra that share corners with four equivalent AlSm3Al9 cuboctahedra, edges with three NbAl12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent NbSm2Al10 cuboctahedra, and faces with two equivalent AlNb2Al10 cuboctahedra. Both Al–Al bond lengths are 2.83 Å. In the seventh Al site, Al is bonded to three equivalent Sm and nine Al atoms to form AlSm3Al9 cuboctahedra that share corners with six AlNb2Al10 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent AlSm3Al9 cuboctahedra, and faces with three equivalent NbSm2Al10 cuboctahedra.« less
