Abstract

Low-lying icosahedral (Ih) B12-containing structures of B80 are explored, and a number of core-shell isomers are found to have lower energy than the previous predicted B80 fullerene. The structural transformation of boron clusters from tubular structure to core-shell structure may occur at a critical size less than B80. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
