Quantum-Chemical Analysis of the Chemical Stability and Cohesive Properties of Hexagonal TiB₂, VB₂, ZrB₂ and NbB₂
The cohesive properties and chemical stability of diborides MB2 have been analysed using the results of full-potential LMTO calculations. A comparison of interatomic M-M, M-B and B-B interactions in MB2 phases (M = Ti, V, Zr, Nb) shows that the changes in the cohesive properties are mainly controlled by the strength of the covalent M-B bonds.
