Continuous symmetry analysis of tetrahedral/planar distortions. Copper chlorides and other AB4 species.

Abstract

The symmetry of tetracoordinated copper complexes, especially of CuCl4(2-), is analyzed in terms of quantitative continuous symmetry. These complexes acquire structures that span from tetrahedral to planar, with all gradual variations in between, a property that is evaluated here in terms of their degrees of tetrahedricity (S(Td)) and square planarity (S… (More)
