Sodium Chloride Crystal Cleavage  
A knife is placed on a large sodium chloride crystal parallel to a cleavage plane. When the knife is tapped, the crystal breaks cleanly, creating two smaller crystals.

Piezoelectric Effect  
Sounds accompany the discharges of electricity. A piezoelectric crystal is connected to a light bulb. When the crystal is pressed, the light flashes.

Thermochromism: Mercury(II) Iodide  
When red-orange Mercury(II) Iodide (HgI2) is heated, it undergoes a phase transition at 126oC to a pale yellow form. As the heated sample cools, it gradually returns to the original red-orange color.

Intermolecular_Forces__Liquids_and_Solids : AtomRadiusUnitCell (7 Variations)
Nickel has a unit cell that is face-centered cubic with a volume of 43.763Å3. The atom at the center of each face just touches the atoms at the corners. What is the atomic radius of nickel?

Intermolecular_Forces__Liquids_and_Solids : DensityFromUnitCell (13 Variations)
Oldhamite (CaS) has a rock salt structure like NaCl (which has interpenetrating face-centered cubic structures). The ionic radius of Ca2+ is 0.99 angstroms, and the ionic radius of S2- is 1.84 angstroms. What is the density of CaS?

A-DNA and B-DNA: Comparing Their Historical X-ray Fiber Diffraction Images  Amand A. Lucas
This paper provides a comparative explanation of the structural content of the diffraction diagrams of A-DNA and B-DNA that facilitated the discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA by Watson and Crick in 1953. This analysis is supported a method that simulates both A-DNA and B-DNA X-ray images optically.

Use of the Primitive Unit Cell in Understanding Subtle Features of the Cubic Close-Packed Structure  John A. Hawkins, Linda M. Soper, Jeffrey L. Rittenhouse, and Robert C. Rittenhouse
Examines the pedagogical advantages in presenting the primitive rhombohedral unit cell as a means of helping students to gain greater insight into the nature of the cubic close-packed structure.

Stuffed Derivatives of Close-Packed Structures  Bodie E. Douglas
Examines a variety of stuffed silica crystal structures in terms of the close-packing of one set of atoms or ions (P sites) with other atoms or ions in tetrahedral (T) or octahedral (O) sites and filled or partially filled layers in the regular pattern, PTOT.
