Calcium Carbide – CaC2

calcium carbide

Crystal structure is a distorted rock-salt structure with the C22− units lying parallel to one another.

Note that this structure bears a similarity to the rock-salt structure. Because C22− is not spherical, the cell is elongated along one axis. This crystal is therefore tetragonal rather than cubic.
