Allotwinning and OD-structures-the example of malonamide

Strand, Daniel LU ; Folkers, Laura LU and Lidin, Sven LU (2016) In Zeitschrift fur Kristallographie - Crystalline Materials 231(10). p.623-629
Abstract

Allotwinning, the ordered intergrowth of two different structures may often be seen as a special case of OD-structures. The same structural ambiguity that allows for locally identical but globally different components of an allotwin may also allow the formation of an OD structure. When this is the case, the components of the allotwin often correspond to the MDO-structures of OD theory. Starting from the example of malonamide, we observe that any structure with z′=2 and a pronounced pseudo symmetry is a candidate for allotwinning and/or OD-structuring.
