A new structural model for disorder in vaterite from first-principles calculations
MetadataShow full item record
Both of the previously proposed Pbnm and P6522 ordered structures for vaterite are found to be unstable transition states using first principles methods. Five stable structures are located, the lowest energy one being of P3221 symmetry. Since interconversion between these structures requires only thermal energy, this provides an additional source of disorder within the vaterite structure.

Determination of the structure of y-alumina using empirical and first principle calculations combined with supporting experimentsPaglia, Gianluca (2004)Aluminas have had some form of chemical and industrial use throughout history. For little over a century corundum (α-Al2O3) has been the most widely used and known of the aluminas. The emerging metastable aluminas, including ...
