isoelectronic Chem.
Describing atoms, molecules or ions having the same number of valence electrons and the same structure with similar connectivity of atoms, irrespective of the type of elements involved. For example, the chloride ion (Cl-) and sulfide ion (S2-) are isoelectronic with the argon atom (all have 8 valence electrons). The CO and N2 with 10 valence electrons. The uncharged H2C=C=0 molecule and H2C=N+=N- zwitterion are also isoelectronic.

isomers Chem.
Molecules that contain the same number of constituent atoms (same molecular formula) but have atoms arranged differently (different structural formula). For instance, butane and isobutane (2-methyl propane) are isomers which have the structural formula of CH3-CH2-CH2-CH3 and CH3-CHCH3-CH3.

number of valence electrons in C6H6=24+6=30,in B3N3H6 it is 3*3+3*5+6=30. In addition to equal number of valence electrons, the two compounds satisfy the definitions of isoelectronic and isomers given above
