Electronic structure and rebonding in the onion-like As@Ni_12@As_20 cluster
We present the first ab-init study of the geometry, electronic structure, charged states, bonding and vibrational modes of the recently synthesized fullerene-like As@Ni12@As20 cluster which has icosahedral point symmetry [Science, 300, 778 (2003)]. We show that the molecule is vibrationally stable and will be electronically most stable in its -3 oxidation state in the condensed phase and in $-2$ state in the gas phase. We examine the bonding in this unusually structured molecule from charge trannsfer between atoms, infrared and Raman spectra, and charge density isosurfaces.
