    Default a question related to punctuation

    should I use quotation mark " or apostrophes ' in the following sentence:

    These ions connect to each other forming a two-dimensional "sheet".

    (they just look like a sheet)

    thanks.

    I'd use a single inverted comma- 'sheet',but I can't see why you can't use "sheet".
