Plate 5

From: Animated molecular dynamics simulations of hydrated caesium-smectite interlayers

Plate 5

A 20 ps portion of the Cs-hectorite, 2/3 water monolayer MD simulation animation (625–645 ps). Interlayer species are represented as described in Plate 1. The highlighted Cs+ (red) can be seen to compete with surrounding water molecules for favorable positions over six-oxygen cavities towards the end of this animation, when it moves forward to occupy a surface site closer to the viewer. See Additional file 5 to access the animation.
