Planar tetracoordinate carbon (ptC) arrangements can be achieved by employing multiple substituents based on beryllium, despite its rather weak pi-acceptor ability. A variety of ptC-containing examples, some with more than one ptC, have been designed computationally by elaborating the planar C(BeH) 4 (2-) prototype at B3LYP/6-311++G(3df,2p) and(More)
Based on the Wade-Mingos n+1 rule for the closo-boranes (B(n)H(n) (2-)), a family of Ti-substituted closo-boranes has been designed computationally. Due to the isolobal relation of Ti to a BH(2-) group, these Ti-substituted boranes have n+1 pairs of skeletal electrons to fulfill the bonding requirement for such stable cages. The reported representatives,(More)
