We carried out molecular dynamics simulation to study the structural characteristics of BaMgAl10O17:Eu2+ (BAM). Our results suggested that Beevers-Ross site is the dominant Eu site in the bulk of BAM. We found structural disorder in BAM near the surface when the BAM crystal surface was clean. We employed Monte Carlo methods to investigate the water sorption on BAM. The water molecules did not intercalate with the bulk of BAM and were dominantly adsorbed by the Eu atoms on the surface.
