    Abstract: Tetrahedral angles of five membered ring are disclosed from the polyhedron geometry point of view, dodecahedron and icosahedron geometry under Fibonacci number. The number of carbons on carbasugar follows the Fibonacci sequence, each carbon is placed at 0.618034 per turn (222.5[deg]). The Fibonacci golden angle 137.5[deg] with its 0.382 turns is ap...

    Abstract: Periodicity of the interaction coefficients of Al and Si; εAlj and εSij in molten iron was analyzed to try generalization of the interaction coefficients. The coefficients of both Al and Si, which are important for deoxidation of molten steels, arranged with periodic table show periodicity with each Period from 2 to 5. Referring to the phase diagra...

    Abstract: Experimental and theoretical studies on molecular and vibrational structure of 1,2,4,5-Tetracyanobenzene (TCNB) have been undertaken in the present work. The FT-IR spectrum and FT Raman spectrum of TCNB were recorded respectively in the region 4000–400 cm−1 and 2500-400 cm-1. The optimized geometries in the ground state were calculated by DFT (B3LY...
