Concerted molecular displacements in a thermally-induced solid-state transformation in crystals of DL-norleucine

Anwar, Jamshed; Tuble, Sigrid; Kendrick, John


Martensitic transformations are of considerable technological importance, a particularly promising application being the possibility of using martensitic materials, possibly proteins, as tiny machines. For organic crystals, however, a molecular level understanding of such transformations is lacking. We have studied a martensitic-type transformation in crystals of the amino acid DL-norleucine using molecular dynamics simulation. The crystal structures of DL-norleucine comprise stacks of bilayers...[Show more]
