Tetravalent chalcogenium ions utilizing a hydrocarbon cage have been investigated by theoretical means with respect to their geometries and their electronic structure using DFT as well as MP2 calculations. In all caseseven for oxygenwe predict thermodynamically stable molecular entities with chalcogens coordinated by four carbon atoms.
