Crystal structures of two twelve-layered CdI2 polytypes

V. K. Agrawal, G. K. Chadha and G. C. Trigunayat


The crystal structures of two 12-layered CdI2 polytypes have been determined by comparison of the observed x-ray diffraction-intensity distributions with the intensity distributions of geometrically possible structures. Their space group is P3m1 and Zhdanov symbols are (22211211) and (11123211), respectively.
