Add on. The Bondon: A New Theory of Electron Effective Coupling and Density Ensembles

  • Mihai V. PutzEmail author


Bondonic chemistry promotes the modeling of chemical transformations by quantum particles of the chemical field, the so-called bondons, rather than by molecular wave function. From the bondonic side, the quantum computational information, mainly regarding the bonding energy, but also with the topology of the molecular architecture, is projected on the length radii or action, bondonic mass and gravitational effects, all without eigen-equations in “classical” quantum mechanics, although being of observable nature, here discussed and compared for their realization and predictions. As a boson and responsible for chemical bonding, i.e. electronic aggregating in a stable structure (despite the inter-electronic repulsion) the gravitational side of the bondons is also manifested, and accordingly here reviewed and applied on paradigmatic chemical compounds. Being a particle of quantum (chemical) interaction, the bondon is necessarily a boson, and emerges from chemical field by a spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism, following the Goldstone mechanism yet featuring the Higgs bosonic mass rising caring the electronic pair information by a bondon-antibondon (Feynman) coupling, eventually corresponding to the bonding-antibonding chemical realms of a given bonding. The present mechanism of bondonic mass is applied for describing the Stone-Wales topological defects on graphene, a 2D carbon material allowing electrons to unidirectionally interact in bosonic-bondonic formation; in this framework, the molecular topology as well as combined molecular topology-chemical reactivity approaches are unfolded showing that bondons fulfill quantum entangled behavior.
