The Cluster Valence Electrons (VE) Are Natural Numbers of Clusters Generated by K(N) Parameters: VE and K(N) Are Intertwined

The paper presents a highly refined work on broad categorization of clusters using the series method with emphasis on cluster valence content. In this regard, the K(n) parameter plays a crucial role. The K(n) parameters are interrelated and have been utilized to generate a cluster map of clusters. The cluster map of skeletal elements and their clusters can be extended indefinitely. The elements refer to main group and transition metal elements. The inter-conversion of K(n) parameter map into a selected portion of cluster valence electron content map was done indicating the origin of the cluster valence electron numbers which are sometimes associated with certain characteristic geometries. The map indicates that the main group and transition metal elements and their clusters are all interlinked via either the K(n) map or the cluster valence electron content map.
