Paradigms and paradoxes. Tetrahedral units: dodecahedral super-structures Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. Different novel organic-chemical possibilities for tetrahedral building units are considered, with attention to their utility in constructing different super-structures. As a representative construction, we consider the use of sets of 20 such identical tetrahedral units to form a super-dodecahedron.
