Poster 132: Christopher Nielson – Bond Dissociation Energies of Early Transition Metal Borides

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Michael Morse

Bond dissociation energies are a property that is crucial to our understanding of chemical processes. These can be difficult to measure in transition metal species due to the complexity of their electronic structure. This has led to a lack of experimental data. This research focused on group 3-5 diatomic transition metal borides, and presents the first measured bond energies of these species. Quantum calculations were also performed to deduce, where possible, the ground state of these molecules.
