Atomic Clusters in the Gas Phase

  • Robert L. Whetten
  • Kenneth E. Schriver
Part of the Modern Inorganic Chemistry book series (MICE)

Abstract

Atomic clusters are systems represented by the simple chemical symbol A N , where A is the identity of the atom and N is the number of atoms constituting the cluster. They are related on one front (small N) to the variegated atoms and homonuclear diatomics, on another front to bulk elemental solids and liquids, and on yet another to the behavior of interfaces, since a high fraction of their atoms must be at the cluster surface.
