Abstract: Based on the structural information on 449 molybdenum cluster compounds in CSD (Cambridge Stuctural Database), the sum of valence electrons of molybdenum clusers, the average bond valences of Mo-Mo and the average bond lengths of Mo-Mo have been calculated. The current method uses the functions of retrieval, molecular plots and statistics in CSD. It is suggested that the valence electron counting rule ofmolybdenum cluster compouds is:
The sum of valence electrons of molybdenum cluster(k)+the sum of bond
valences for Mo-Mo×2=18×n-2×ΣΔ_i
and the sum of bond valence for Mo-Mo can be counted by using the formula:
v=(18×n-k)/2-ΣΔ_i
the geometry...
