Unusual Bonding in Platinum Carbido Clusters.


Vibrational spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations are used to determine the structures of small gas-phase platinum carbido clusters PtnC(+), n = 3-5. The carbon atom is found to prefer three-coordinate binding sites near the center of the cluster, in contrast to most previously investigated adatoms on transition metal clusters. The Pt3C… (More)
