The Golden Series and Clusters of Gold-unique Shapes and Bonding

Abstract

Golden clusters have been analyzed and categorized using the series method. They have been found to be intensely capped. The complexity of capping is likely responsible for the unique shapes of clusters. The predicted structures of the golden clusters with one or two nuclear indices have been found to be in agreement with the observations from structural determinations. According to the series, the golden clusters have tendency of occurring in an overlapping area which is normally dominated by naked metal clusters. The series approach method is easy and very reliable in analyzing and characterizing clusters. A brief background to the series method was included to ease readability of the paper.
