Thermal Stability of Cubane C 8 H 8

Abstract

The reasons for the anomalously high thermal stability of cubane C 8 H 8 and the mechanisms of its decomposition are studied by numerically simulating the dynamics of this metastable cluster at T = 1050-2000 K using a tight-binding potential. The decomposition activation energy is found from the temperature dependence of the cubane lifetime obtained from… (More)
