Other Properties of Metal Clusters

  • Satoru Sugano
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 20)


At the beginning of this chapter we discuss the non-empirically derived geometries of small alkali-metal clusters. Then, the coexistence of the shell structure and the group of 3d levels is discussed for noble- and transitionmetal clusters. The magic numbers due to valence electrons have also been observed in divalent (Cd,Zn) and trivalent (Al) metal clusters. These clusters are discussed at the closing part of this chapter.
