Yamagata University


Conformers of [M(ABC)6] complex have been enumerated on the basis of computational group theory, where M is the central metal, and ABC is the ligand, bound to M through A. Based on the 16 conformers of the M(AB)6 core unit, 7173 conformers have been found for the [M(ABC)6] complex, which are assigned to nine point groups, 1 D3d, 4 D3, 4 S6, 5 C2h, 7 C3, 182 C2, 15 Cs, 23 Ci, and 6932 C1.
