This computational study identifies the rhombic D2hC2 (BeH)4 (2a) to be a species featuring double planar tetracoordinate carbons (ptCs). Aromaticity and the peripheral BeBeBeBe bonding around CC core contribute to the stabilization of the ptC structure. Although the ptC structure is not a global minimum, its high kinetic stability and its distinct feature(More)
Density functional theory computations (B3LYP) have been used to explore the chemistry of titanium-aromatic carbon "edge complexes" with 1,3-metal-carbon (1,3-MC) bonding between Ti and planar tetracoordinate Cβ . The titanium-coordinated, end-capping chlorides are replaced with OH or SH groups to afford two series of difunctional monomers that can undergo(More)
Searches for planar hexacoordinate carbon (phC) species comprised of only seven atoms uncovered good CX(3)M(3) prototypes, D(3h) CN(3)Be(3)(+) and CO(3)Li(3)(+). The latter is the global minimum. It might also be possible to detect the deep-lying kinetically-viable D(3h) CN(3)Be(3)(+) local minimum, based on its robustness toward molecular dynamic(More)
