As we learnt in

Crystalline solid -

Solid in which constituent particles are arranged in a definite regular order upto infinite array in three dimension. It is anisotropic and have sharp melting point.

- wherein

Ex. NaCl, diamond

 

Frenkel defect is shown by ionic substances in which there is a large difference in the size of ions. Here, the smaller ion occupies an interstitial site creating a vacancy.
