Abstract

Diborane-tetraborane conversion in a C-60 cage is theoretically considered by using AM1-RHF type semiempirical quantum chemical approach. Molecular orbital characteristics of some endohedrally boron hydride doped C-60 composite systems are investigated and the likeliness of diborane-tetraborane conversion in a C-60 vesicle for the purpose of hydrogen storage is discussed.
