Abstract
Description
The comment of Dubrovinskaia et al. is scientifically flawed. The high-pressure form of boron, discovered by Oganov et al., is indeed new and its bonding has a significant ionic character, as demonstrated in Ref. 1.
Comment: This manuscript was submitted to Nature as Reply to 'Brief Communication Arising' by Dubrovinskaia et al. (arXiv:0907.1900) and caused the rejection of the latter with publication of Addendum by Oganov et al. (Nature 460, 292 (2009))
