In this paper, the molecular structure and chemical bonding of lanthanum monocarboxide have been studied with the density functional theory method. It is found that lanthanum monocarboxide can exist in two structures, LaCO and LaOC, that is, there exists linkage isomerism in lanthanum monocarboxide.

Key words: Lanthanum monocarboxide, Molecular structure, Chemical bonding, Density functional theory, Linkage isomerism
