    • Abstract


      Several sandwich-like metal clusters have been studied at the B3LYP/6-311 + G level of theory. Bonding and reactivity have been analysed through various geometrical parameters and conceptual density functional theory based global reactivity descriptors. Aromaticity patterns have been understood in terms of the associated nucleus independent chemical shift values. Possibility of bond-stretch isomerism in some doped clusters is explored. Preferable sites for electrophilic and nucleophilic attacks have been identified using different local reactivity descriptors.
