Figure 3
(a), (b) Experimental and calculated PDFs for the two crystalline phyllomanganate references KBi8 and NaBi shown on the right (fractional site occupancies have been omitted). (c) PDFs for crystalline KBi8 and nanocrystalline dBi10 showing the loss of structural coherence above 7-8 Å in dBi10 caused by turbostratic disorder. The expanded 7-12 Å region in the inset shows that dBi10 has a wider distribution of Mn...Mn4L and Mn...Mn6,7L distances. The amplitude for the PDF of KBi8 was scaled in the inset to aid comparison with dBi10.  [article HTML]
