Abstract

A Monte Carlo simulation study has been carried out on the glassy crystalline phases of methane obtained by annealing or quenching the plastic (orientationally disordered) phase. Different cooling rates lead to different states of the glass. Temperature variation of the reorientational parameter suggests the presence of a transition between the plastic and glassy crystalline phases.
