Structural volume


The interior of a diamondoid structure typically consists of a dense network of covalent bonds; a larger excluded volume, however, is determined by nonbonded repulsions at the surface. The structural volume corresponds to a region smaller than the excluded volume, chosen to make properties such as the strength and modulus nearly size independent by correcting for surface effects.
