Frontispiece: Usefulness of the σ-Aromaticity and σ-Antiaromaticity Concepts for Clusters and Solid-State Compounds
Alyona A. Starikova, Alexander I. Boldyrev, Dmitry V. Steglenko, Ivan A. Popov
The usefulness of the concepts of σ-aromaticity and σ-antiaromaticity in the chemistry of small clusters to bulky solid-state compounds is discussed in this Review. For example, the counter-intuitive geometry of the global minimum structure of the Li2Mg2 cluster can be explained by using the σ-aromaticity based on the particular delocalized bonding pattern and energy considerations. For more details of different examples, see the Review by A. I. Boldyrev and co-workers on page 292 ff.
