One-dimensional V2O5 models (not DFT-optimized) as predicted by GRINSP

Construction of these V2O5 models (3D, 2D, and 1D) described in 2005 and 2010 in refs. [1 and 8] - VO5 square pyramids or/and trigonal bipyramids interconnected exclusively by corner-sharing. Data from the 2009 (1319 models) PCOD updates. Ordered by increasing FD (Framework Density) : largest tunnels and biggest cavities.

Not exhaustive list (more will be added during the next weeks, maybe, and also, much more can be obtained by running again GRINSP)...
