Abstract

Semiempirical quantum-chemical calculations are reported for the fullerenic structures C60, Si60, Ge60, N60; B36N24, B36P24, Al36N24, Al36P24; and various BnNn. A new route towards B/N clusters is considered, being based on squares and hexagons. The pattern always requires six squares. The route can produce species of similar or even higher stability comparing to the conventional pentagon/hexagon pattern. Four particular stoichiometries emerge from the available AM1 computations: B12N12, B28N28, B36N36, and B36N24.
