A disk-aromatic bowl cluster B30: toward formation of boron buckyballs

Author affiliations

Abstract

The B30 boron cluster has a bowl rather than a double-ring or a triple-ring tubular structure. This bowl isomer exhibits disk-aromaticity similar to that found for B202− and B19 clusters. We confirmed that the concept of disk-aromaticity can be applied to both planar and non-planar systems.
