Electronic Considerations in Metalloboranes.
CALIFORNIA UNIV LOS ANGELES DEPT OF CHEMISTRY
Pagination or Media Count:
A 2n 14 electron rule is proposed for closo n-vertex polyhedral heteroboranes containing one transition metal vertex. Nido polyhedra of this type require 2n 16 electrons while closo polyhedra with two transition metal vertices require 2n 26 electrons. The application and chemical consequences of these proposals are discussed. Author
