First synthesis of a cationic tetrahedral cluster in solution

23-Oct-2019

Main-group atoms often occur in small clusters, which can be neutral, negative or positive charged. The best known neutral cluster-tetrahedron is white phosphorus (P4), but other tetrahedra can also be isolated. They are four-atom molecules whose spatial arrangement corresponds to a tetrahedron ...
