Correlation of cluster and bulk structure: Electron-diffraction measurements of homonuclear 55-atom transition-metal cluster anions covering essentially all 3d and 4d elements show only four main structure families. Elements with the same bulk lattice morphology generally have a common cluster structure type. The cluster structure types differ in maximum atomic coordination numbers in analogy to the coordination numbers in the corresponding bulk lattices.
