Thermal evolution of Mg–Al and Ni–Al layered double hydroxides: the structure of the dehydrated phase

A loss of water molecules leads to the topotactic transformation of the initial structure of Mg–Al and Ni–Al layered double hydroxides having a hydrotalcite-like structure and consisting of 3R1 and 2H1 layered fragments with trigonal prismatic interlayers. The structure of the dehydrated phase comprises turbostratically disordered 3R2 and 1H layered fragments with octahedral interlayers that can be related to the change in orientation of interlayer anions and the appearance of tetrahedrally coordinated cations in the interlayers.

A total scattering Debye function analysis study of faulted Pt nanocrystals embedded in a porous matrix

An algorithm enabling the active usage of deformation fault probabilities in face-centred cubic metals within the Debye scattering equation approach implemented in the DEBUSSY suite, and the subsequent characterization of Pt nanocrystals grown in a nanoporous silica matrix are presented.

Accepted 21 September 2016

100 years of Debye's scattering equation

Debye's scattering equation constitutes the most accurate description of the intensity scattered by an ideal powder. Milestone applications and theoretical developments are reviewed and discussed.

Accepted 31 August 2016

2-Periodic self-dual tilings

All uninodal, binodal and trinodal 2-periodic self-dual tilings are enumerated and described.

Accepted 30 August 2016

Constraint-induced direct phasing method

Accepted 27 August 2016

Revisiting La0.5Sr1.5MnO4 lattice distortion and charge ordering with multi-beam resonant diffraction

Sinusoidal wave type distortions of La0.5Sr1.5MnO4 in the low-temperature orthorhombic phase were observed using multi-beam resonant X-ray diffraction and dynamical theory.

Accepted 24 August 2016

Peter J. W. Debye – a whole life devoted to science

Debye's works on the origin and evolution of the scattering equation and its first uses are briefly re-examined. The career of the great scientist and some of his other numerous and diverse contributions to science are also reviewed.

Accepted 22 August 2016

Sphere packings as a tool for the description of martensitic phase transformations

Martensitic phase transformations are described by means of group–subgroup relations and sphere-packing considerations.
