Unravelling phenomenon of internal rotation in B13+ through chemical bonding analysis

Abstract

We describe and explain the fluxionality of B13+. The chemical bonding analysis shows that the inner triangle of B13+ is bound to the peripheral ring by delocalized bonds only, allowing a quasi-free rotation of the inner ring.
