The U4Re7Si6 type - Trends in electronic structure and chemical bonding


The electronic structures and chemical bonding of selected ternary compounds of the family of A4T7X6 (of U4Re7Si6 –type) intermetallics have been studied by ab initio methods. The calculations for two series: Mg4Rh7P6, Sc4Co7Ge6, Ti4Co7Ge6 and uranium containing U4Re7Si6, U4Ru7Ge6, and U4Ru7As6 show common bonding characteristics pertaining to main T1-X and… (More)
