polytopal rearrangement

Stereoisomerization interconverting different or equivalent spatial arrangements of ligands about a central atom or of a cage of atoms, where the ligand or cage defines the vertices of a polyhedron. For example pyramidal inversion of amines, Berry pseudorotation of PF5, rearrangements of polyhedral boranes.
