The a and c unit cell dimensions of melanophlogite (MEP) have been determined in the temperature range −50 to 700 °C, showing a different expansion behavior for the low temperature α-phase. The c-axis length, 2c, which is smaller than a-axis length in the α-phase, shows a steep rise reaching the value of a at the tetragonal (α)-cubic (β) transition temperature at about 65 °C, and then remains nearly constant until about 500 °C, after which contraction occurs. The crystal structures of α-MEP…
