A Super-Cluster Network of (H2O)100 clusters

The (H2O)100 clusters, central to ES (H2O)280 icosahedral clusters can form networks by linking through their outer pentameric (H2O)5 rings (forming partial structures from the ES (H2O)280 icosahedral cluster. Such (H2O)100 partial structures involve fewer but slightly less strained hydrogen bonds than those present in the complete ES (H2O)280 structure. For clarity, only the oxygen atoms are shown. Such regular matrices are not generally expected, and this structure is given as an example of some of the links available (850 KB).
