In this paper, we have developed a mathematical model of the dynamics of molecular structures arising from an approach using B42 molecules. The model is based on equations that determine the motion of the centers of mass of the molecules in question, and equations for the projections of the moments of quantities of motion of these particles on the axes associated with them. The thermal motions of boron atoms within each individual molecule are calculated using a bond-ordered potential. The intermolecular interactions of atoms have a potential that appears to coincide with that of free atoms. However, the interaction parameters differ. The obtained columns of molecular disks for B42 are stable structures. We determine the characteristic vibration amplitudes and rotation frequency of the molecules in question. View Full-Text
