Whereas the synthesis and isolation of these metallosupramolecular structures will take advantage of rapid axial ligand exchange at elevated temperatures and the charge neutrality in the ru(ii) oxidation state, Water networks will form in the internal cavities of the polygons, Polyhedra and coordination networks for the catalytically active ru(iv/v) species.
The charge neutrality equation under nonequilibrium is given by
These calculations solve the charge neutrality equation self-consistently for a four-band model (three conduction sub-bands at [GAMMA], L, and X and one equivalent valence band at [GAMMA]) of GaSb.
It might also dispel any remaining doubts about the charge neutrality of atoms.
