We have investigated over twelve different ligands bonding to boron leading to doublet and quadruplet BX, whose two moieties form singlet XBBX(X= CO, CS, N2, CNCH3, H2O, H2S, NH3PH3, C5H5N, CN , F , NO2are analysized on the basis of the natural charges,wiberg bond indices (WBI) values, bond lengths and bond dissociation energies.
Other tables have been updated and revised, including the table of interatomic distances and bond angles in gas phase molecules and the table on bond dissociation energies.
His innovative studies provided the first comprehensive compilation of standard potentials of radicals, dramatically increased the store of reliable bond dissociation energies, and generated many novel chemical probes of reaction mechanisms.
