Graph Theory of Capping Golden Clusters

Enos Masheija Rwantale Kiremire


Skeletal numbers and their valences have been extremely useful in analyzing and categorizing clusters especially boranes, carbonyls, and Zintl ions. This approach is being extended to the analysis and categorization of golden clusters. The newly introduced concept of graphing will also be applied to the clusters. The capping symbol Kp = CYC[Mx] which has been restricted to post-closo clusters will be adapted for pre-closo cluster series. The concept of the existence of black holes in the nuclei of capping golden clusters will be introduced and explained.
