A new chiral boron cluster B44 containing nonagonal holes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The B44 cluster has a cage-like structure containing two hexagonal, two heptagonal and two nonagonal holes. The presence of nonagonal holes is a new and remarkable finding since they have never been reported before in clusters. The present work does not only identify the new chiral members, but also provide more insight into the growth motif of large-sized boron clusters.
