Abstract

ding, which include back donation of Cd Ss, Sp and Pt 5d into Ca 3d states in the principal bonding modes for Ca Cd and Ca Pt. Bonding Ca Ca, Ca Cd, and Cd Cd states remain above EF, and some relative oxidation of Ca in this structure seems probable. Ca6PtCd11 joins a.small group of other phases in which Cd clustering and Cd Cd bonding are important.
