Stability, reactivity, and aromaticity of compounds of a multivalent superatom.


In this article, we analyze the stability, reactivity, and possible aromatic behavior of two recently reported clusters (Reveles, J. U.; Khanna, S. N.; Roach, P. J.; Castleman, A. W., Jr. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 2006, 103, 18405), viz., Al(7)C(-) and Al(7)O(-) in the light of the principles of the maximum hardness and minimum electrophilicity as well as the… (More)
