Session Abstract

Modular structures are built of distinct layers, rods or blocks, which can be arranged in different ways. They are ubiquitously found in the realms of synthetic inorganic chemistry as well as mineral compounds and lead to challenging crystallographic problems, such a twinning, allotwinning or diffuse
scattering owing to disorder. Moreover, recognition of the modular character of a structure allows for a classification into structure families. The symmetry description of modular structures, as well as their modelling using for example the superspace approach is an active area of research.
