Connectivity pattern
Examples
The layers are stacked along the [001] direction using the following connectivity patterns

 
Symmetry
Operation*
Translation* Comment Image
i
None
  one inversion center shown as an open circle in the example
m
None
  mirrow plane shown as a solid line in the example
 

* relative to the previous layer


Effect on channel system
  The disorder does not block the channel system
Simplest ordered end members
The color of each layer reflects the symmetry/translation operation used to generate it from the previous layer (see table above).

Cell Parameters: monoclinic C 1 2/m 1 (# 12)
    a = 9.7620 Å b = 20.5300 Å c = 9.9960 Å  
  α = 90.0000° β = 96.8970° γ = 90.0000°  
Ring sizes (# T-atoms): 8 6 5 4  
Channel dimensionality: Topological (pore opening > 6-ring): 2-dimensional  
Channel system: [100] 8 3.8 x 4.1* <-> [001] 8 2.5 x 5.6*  
 
In this space group and setting, the PerBUs are stacked along [001]
Adjacent layers generated by the same connectivity pattern (same basic color) are shown with different shades for clarity.

Note: This polymorph corresponds to the ordered framework RTH
