4 Conclusions

We simulated the A1C13 liquid and found mainly dimers that are connected in the edge-sharing configuration. However, there were also other configurations such as trimers, tetramers and pentamers. The simulated data will be further analyzed to see whether the small amount of larger angles is due to the monomers or due to a small amount of corner-sharing dimers or even larger clusters such as trimer, tetramers or pentamers.
