Self-organized genesis of Lunijianlaite and its apparent single-crystal
ABSTRACT From the structure of layer stacking of Lunijianlaite and its host and theory of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, a nonlinear
dynamical model named “Shenkuoator” has been presented under the condition of nonequilibrium. The numerical results have been
successfully used to explain the self-organized ordering phenomenon at two levels in the apparent single-crystal. Hence, the
latter has been confirmed as crystallization product of the supersaturated silicate solution, whose chemical composition is
between that of cookeite and pyrophyllite, under the conditions of nonequilibrium and nonlinearity.

ABSTRACT: Materials representing common interstratified clay minerals are shown to be composed of aggregates of fundamental particles. Transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction demonstrate that the x-ray diffraction characteristics of a wide range of interstratification can be modeled experimentally by utilizing materials containing only three types of particles. The data have been incorporated into a new model that regards interstratified clay minerals as populations of fundamental particles whose x-ray diffraction patterns result from interparticle diffraction.Science 09/1984; 225(4665):923-5. · 31.03 Impact Factor
