Materials Data on BaLaI5 by Materials Project

Kristin Persson
BaLaI5 crystallizes in the monoclinic P2_1/c space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ba2+ is bonded to seven I1- atoms to form distorted BaI7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with four equivalent LaI6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent LaI6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent BaI7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 17–46°. There are a spread of Ba–I bond distances ranging from 3.43–3.73 Å. La3+ is bonded to six I1- atoms to...
