The mixed transition-metal clusters NbmRhn (m, n≤2) have been calculated using density functional theory and the structures, stabilities and bond formation discussed. The results show that the bond Nb—Nb is stronger than that of Nb—Rh, and the weakest bond is Rh—Rh. The straight line and fold line structures of Nb2Rh2 have the weak-strong alternately bonds and all the structures are stable under low spin multiplicity.

Key words: density functional theory, transition-metal cluster, metal bond
