The aim of this highly original book is to survey a number of chemical compounds that some chemists, theoretical and experimental, find fascinating. This is the first book to feature compounds/classes of compounds of theoretical interest that have been studied theoretically but have defied synthesis. It is hoped that this collection of idiosyncratic molecules will appeal to chemists who find the study of chemical oddities interesting and, on occasion, even rewarding.Between nitrogen pentafluoride and related species, and the helium compounds of Chapter 5, there is is a curious link, beyond the fact that both ... chemists), decrees that the elements from lithium to neon cannot have more than eight electrons in their valence shells. ...
