Quick Reference

The property of a substance with more than one crystalline structure that is isomorphous with the crystalline structures of another substance (see polymorphism). For example, antimony(III) oxide, Sb2O3, has both rhombic and octahedral structures and these are isomorphous with the similar structures of arsenic(III) oxide, As2O3; both oxides therefore exhibit isopolymorphism.
