Abstract

Ab initio calculations based on the density functional theory (DFT) were performed with respect to the structure and orbital energy values of a simple [HPO3BH]4 cage, and the results were discussed with structural parameters reported for other borophosphonate cages as well as with the calculated orbital energy values of its silsesquioxane analogue, [HSiO1.5]8. In addition, two novel borophosphonate cages capable of use as element-block monomers were prepared from two boronic acid-t-butylphosphonic acid reactions.
