Structure and Bonding in Zintl Ions and Related Main Group Element Clusters

  • R. B. King
Part of the Structure and Bonding book series (STRUCTURE, volume 140)

Abstract

This chapter reviews the methods that are useful for understanding the structure and bonding in Zintl ions and related bare post-transition element clusters in approximate historical order. After briefly discussing the Zintl-Klemm model the Wade-Mingos rules and related ideas are discussed. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the jellium model and special methods pertaining to bare metal clusters with interstitial atoms.

Keywords:
