Graph Theory of Chemical Series and Broad Categorization of Clusters

Enos Masheija Rwantale Kiremire

Abstract


The recent introduction of skeletal numbers has made it much easier to analyze and categorize a wide range of many chemical clusters. In the process, it has been found that a large number of transition metal clusters with and without ligands are capped and do possess closo nuclear clusters. On the basis of the nuclear index, the clusters have been categorized into groups. The categorization of the clusters will greatly assist in promoting deeper understanding and the synthesis of novel clusters and their applications. A simple concept of graph theory of capping clusters has been introduced.
