A CIF file of Monoclinic $\ce{MoO2}$ is not available in the Crystallography Open Database website. How can I make it myself or find it elsewhere?

  • $\begingroup$ I was guessing you used the COD. Have you tried any of the other databases in this IUCR list? $\endgroup$

I was able to find a CIF for this compound through the Materials Project. You can download the CIF, along with viewing other properties of this structure, here: Monoclinic MoO2

In general, the Materials Project is a good place to look for CIFs, along with any of the databases listed by the IUCR (International Union of Crystallography).

You can download structures freely from the database of Materials Project.

For example, the monoclinic MoO$_2$ can be found from this link: https://materialsproject.org/materials/mp-559140/

  • $\begingroup$ It looks like your link is for monoclinic $\ce{MnO2}$ rather than $\ce{MoO2}$ $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @user4106 The previous link is related MnO$_2$ rather than MoO$_2$, you can find monoclinic MoO$_2$ from the updated link. $\endgroup$
