Certain complex structures are logically regarded as intergrowths of chemically or topologically discrete modules. When the proportions of these components vary systematically a polysomatic series is created, whose construction provides a basis for understanding defects, symmetry alternation and trends in physical properties. Here, we describe the polysomatic family A5NB3NO9N + 6XNδ (2 ≤ N ≤ ∞ ) that is built by condensing N apatite modules (A 5B3O18Xδ) in configurations to create BnO3n + 1 (1...[Show more]
