Özet

The energetics and the structural stabilities of small SimCn clusters with m + n = 2-5 have been investigated by AM1 and PM3 type semi-empirical molecular orbital methods within the RHF formalizm. It has been found that small silicon-carbide clusters prefer the linear structure. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
