Theoretical study of the structure of tetraborane(10) Academic Article uri icon


  • Fully optimized geometries are reported for two possible isomers of B4H10. At the restricted Hartree-Fock level, the unobserved bisdiborane isomer is lower in energy than the observed isomer. Generalized-molecular-orbital, configuration-interaction calculations show that electron correlation is responsible for this reversal. Electron correlation may be important in stabilizing other cluster molecules. © 1981.
