Abstract

Single crystals can commonly have negative Poisson's ratio in a few directions; however more generalised auxeticity is rarer. We propose a typology to distinguish auxetic materials. We characterise numerous single crystals and demonstrate that partial auxeticity occurs for around 37%. We find average auxeticity to be limited to α-cristobalite and no example of complete auxeticity. We simulate two hundreds pure silica zeolites with empirical potentials and quantum chemistry methods, and for the first time identify complete auxeticity in a zeolite network, JST.
