Abstract

Calculated cohesive energies were used to test and to discriminate between alternative model structures. Sets of structures were constructed, based on talc, pyrophyllite, muscovite, biotite and anandite. Each model set was designed so that all structures in a given set would have the same short-range repulsive forces and the same van der Waals forces. The difference between the cohesive energies of two structures could then be ascribed to long-range Coulomb electrostatic forces.
