Definition of decahedral in English:



  • See decahedron

    • ‘The vertical ionization potentials of Al { sub 3 } X is larger than that of Al { sub 13 } in the decahedral structure while the opposite is the case with the icosahedral isomer.’
    • ‘Decahedral clusters have a surface tension closer to that of fcc and hcp ones than to that of icosahedral ones, though both icosahedral and decahedral structures have five fold symmetry axis.’
    • ‘In fact, they have a truncated decahedral structure with a 5-fold symmetry.’
