Over the past decade computer simulation techniques have become an increasingly valuable tool in science as an aid to the interpretation of experimental data and as a means of yielding an atomic level model (Catlow et al. 1994; Wright et al. 1992). The scope of such methods has advanced alongside the developments in computational hardware, as has their accuracy, to the point where predictions can now be made ahead of experiment (Couves et al. 1993).

The development of the methodology for the simulation of inorganic and organic materials has largely evolved independently to date. For...
