Beyond the Periodic Table of Elements: The Role of Superatoms.

Beyond the Periodic Table of Elements: The Role of Superatoms. Atomic clusters composed of homo or heteroatomic species constitute an intermediate phase of matter where every atom counts and whose properties depend on their size, shape, composition, and charge. If specific clusters mimicking the chemistry of atoms can be produced, they can be thought of as man-made superatoms forming the building blocks of a new three-dimensional periodic table. Novel materials with tailored properties can then be synthesized by assembling these superatoms. This invited Perspective presents a brief summary of the pioneering works that led to this concept, and highlights the recent breakthroughs that hold promise for a new era in materials science. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters Pubmed

Beyond the Periodic Table of Elements: The Role of Superatoms.


Abstract

Atomic clusters composed of homo or heteroatomic species constitute an intermediate phase of matter where every atom counts and whose properties depend on their size, shape, composition, and charge. If specific clusters mimicking the chemistry of atoms can be produced, they can be thought of as man-made superatoms forming the building blocks of a new three-dimensional periodic table. Novel materials with tailored properties can then be synthesized by assembling these superatoms. This invited Perspective presents a brief summary of the pioneering works that led to this concept, and highlights the recent breakthroughs that hold promise for a new era in materials science.
