Corrigendum to “Boron-nitrogen analogues of cyclo[18]carbon” [Chem. Phys. Lett. 738 (2020) 136860](S0009261419308413)(10.1016/j.cplett.2019.136860)

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


A paper by the author [1] recently published in this journal unfortunately missed to cite an important theoretical study of BnNn (n = 3–10) neutral clusters by Martin et al. [2] in which the molecular geometry and vibrational frequencies of the D9h-symmetric B9N9 monocycle were predicted. Hence, the author's introductory statement in Ref. [1] that the “stability and symmetry [of B9N9] are yet unknown” is incorrect. The author wishes to express his sincere apologies for the oversight. Closely related to the work of Martin et al. [2] are a theoretical study of the BnNn + (n = 3–10) cationic clusters by Giuffreda et al. [3] and a paper by Strout [4] on the relative stability of rings and cages of the BnNn (n = 8–11) neutral clusters. Finally, along with the theoretical studies cited in Ref. [1], the author wishes to add Refs. [5–10] containing computational results for the cyclo[18]carbon (C18) molecule and its cation.
