Dear Visitor,

As you already know, the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to March 10th. We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session.

Modular Aspects of Mineral Structures

Convenors: Massimo Nespolo; Marco Pasero; Sergey Krivovichev

Description: Modular structures are built by modules (blocks, rods, layers) which differ either in the chemistry or in the crystallographic orientation / position. They include polytypes and OD structures, polysomatic and homologous series, cell-twins, as well as twins and epi/syntaxies. The structure-building principle allows fine tuning of both structure and chemical composition and represents one of the most outstanding mechanisms by which Nature produces a wide range of minerals from a relatively limited number of building blocks. The understanding of the features of these minerals represents a challenge both for the experimental mineralogist and for the theoretician and opens a huge horizon for crystal engineering.
