Figure 9
(a) Structural model of the intermediate structure, with large available tetrahedral interstices as indicated; (b, c) filling tetrahedral interstices with a few Al3+ cations to form the Paglia model; (d, e) filling tetrahedral interstices with more Al3+ cations to form this-work model; (f, g) filling tetrahedral interstices with Al3+ cations symmetrically to maintain a geometrical constraint (a = b = c/21/2) to form a cubic structure, which is a skeleton of the Smrčok model. Notice the substantial lattice contraction along b in this process. Octahedral Al is shown in green, tetrahedral Al in blue, and O in red.
