This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Variations in mean bond-length are examined in oxide and oxysalt crystals for 55 cation configurations bonded to oxygen. The assignment of a coordination-based radius to oxygen is found not to be supported by experimental data.
