Unveiling the role of upper excited electronic states in the photochemistry and laser performance of anti-B18H22
How understanding excited-state photochemistry and photophysics of anti-B18H22 can explain its laser characteristics
Our latest HUGE metal-borane cluster…in fact 4 clusters fused to generate this octaplatinum beast of a molecule. The eight platinum centres condense in a geometry similar to the Hercules constellation. Simply stellar chemistry!
Attaching methyl groups to the periphery of anti-B18H22 causes the 18-vertex borane cluster to literally swell!
