Conventional Cells - Monoclinic I-& C-Centered Cells

Abstract

In the selection of a centered cell in the monoclinic system, it is recommended that the experimentalist select an I-centered cell for those cases in which it is the conventional cell- a and c are coincident with the shortest two translations in the net perpendicular to b (b-axis unique). The common practice of selecting a non-conventional C-centered cell in such cases should be discontinued.
