The Capping Theory of Chemical Elements and Clusters Based on 4N Series and Skeletal Numbers

  •  Enos Masheija Rwantale Kiremire    


The genesis of chemical clusters of the transition and main group elements has been established. The base-line cluster valence electrons has been demarcated with help of capping series. Using the base-line as a reference, the formulas of fragments and clusters were generated.  Also a simple general formula for cleating cluster valence electrons for systems ranging from a single skeletal element to hundreds of them was identified. In so doing, the single elements of the periodic table were naturally placed into their respective periods. The concepts of the existence of nuclei in clusters and some having black-holes were deeply rooted. A tentative explanation of some clusters having an octahedral geometry but with low cluster valence electron count was put forward.
