The Golden Ratio, the Principle of Construction of Atoms

Authors: Raji Heyrovska

Exactly today fifteen years ago, the author arrived at the unique result that the ground state Bohr radius of the hydrogen atom is divided into two parts pertaining to the electron and proton, the ratio of which was amazingly a constant. This constant turned out to be the Golden ratio, a mathematical constant, known from ancient times to appear in many spontaneous creations of Nature, big and small. Further work showed that the interatomic distances in alkali metals and halogens are divided exactly into their cationic and anionic radii by the Golden ratio, the sums of which accounted precisely for the interionic distances in alkali halides. This cascaded over the years into the additivity rule of atomic and or ionic radii in the structures of small as well as large molecules. This is summarized in this short paper.
