One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A measure of the energy contained in the crystal lattice of a compound, equal to the energy that would be released if the component ions were brought together from infinity.
- ‘In the case of van der Waals solids, the lattice energy can be calculated by summing up the pair potentials of interacting atoms using a secondary bond potential for atomic interactions.’
- ‘Furthermore, the surface of the bilayer of anhydrous cholesterol is highly corrugated and thus the lattice energy of such a bilayer is less stable than that of the flat bilayer and would be unfavorable on a flat water surface.’
