The EMD is an intergrowth of pyrolusite and ramsdellite-MnO2 polymorphs. Amorphization and recrystallization technique has been used to generate MnO2 structures and study their structural properties. The simulation methodology involves allowing an amorphous transition, enabling various structural modifications to evolve during simulation in response to lattice misfit and underlying support.
