Abstract

Fully variational unrestricted Hartree-Fock calculations for the (MnF6)4- cluster are reported. Charge and spin densities are analyzed and shown to result in a neutron magnetic form factor which is contracted relative to the free-ion value in agreement with experiment but contrary to predictions of simple covalent-bonding theory.
