Planar or tetrahedral? A ternary 17-electron CBe5H4+ cluster with planar pentacoordinate carbon

Author affiliations

Abstract

A 17-electron CBe5H4+ cluster features planar pentacoordinate carbon, owing to the 2π/6σ double aromaticity. The neutral CBe5H4 cluster has a tetrahedral configuration despite its 18-electron counting. The latter species is governed by σ conjugation.
