Abstract

This paper examines and obtains the bonding levels for the two octahedral structures Ta6Cl12+2 and Mo6Cl8+4. Some similarity is expected between these two. This similarity is evident when we compare total bonding strengths. To evaluate the total bonding strengths, the researcher neglects interactions between different orbitals as an approximation. This approximation is valid since the downward shift of the Flu levels is the same for both structures and the shift downward of the F2u level in Mo6Cl8+4 is similar in magnitude of the shift of the F2g level in Ta6Cl12+2.
