Title: Estimation of Some Parameters from Morse-Morse-Spline-Van Der Waals Intermolecular Potential

Abstract

Some parameters such as transport cross-sections and isotopic thermal diffusion factor have been calculated from an improved intermolecular potential, Morse-Morse-Spline-van der Waals (MMSV) potential proposed by R.A. Aziz et al. The treatment was completely classical and no corrections for quantum effects were made. The results would be employed for isotope separations of different spherical and quasi-spherical molecules.

  • Theoretical studies of the potential energy surface (PES) and bound states are performed for the N{sub 2}–N{sub 2}O van der Waals (vdW) complex. A four-dimensional intermolecular PES is constructed at the level of single and double excitation coupled-cluster method with a non-iterative perturbation treatment of triple excitations [CCSD(T)] with aug-cc-pVTZ basis set supplemented with bond functions. Two equivalent T-shaped global minima are located, in which the O atom of N{sub 2}O monomer is near the N{sub 2} monomer. The intermolecular fundamental vibrational states are assigned by inspecting the orientation of the nodal surface of the wavefunctions. The calculated frequency formore » intermolecular disrotation mode is 23.086 cm{sup −1}, which is in good agreement with the available experimental data of 22.334 cm{sup −1}. A negligible tunneling splitting with the value of 4.2 MHz is determined for the ground vibrational state and the tunneling splitting increases as the increment of the vibrational frequencies. Rotational levels and transition frequencies are calculated for both isotopomers {sup 14}N{sub 2}–N{sub 2}O and {sup 15}N{sub 2}–N{sub 2}O. The accuracy of the PES is validated by the good agreement between theoretical and experimental results for the transition frequencies and spectroscopic parameters.« less
  • Calculations of vibrational energies and rotational constants are carried out for the van der Waals trimer Ar[sub 2]-HF. The calculations include all five intermolecular degrees of freedom. The different intramolecular vibrational states [ital v] of the HF molecule are separated out adiabatically, so that the calculations are carried out on effective intermolecular potentials for each HF vibrational state separately. Calculations are performed both on pairwise-additive potentials, derived from the well-known Ar-Ar and Ar-HF potentials, and on nonadditive potentials, incorporating various different contributions to the three-body forces. The results are compared with experimental results from high-resolution spectroscopy, and provide detailed informationmore » on the anisotropy of the nonadditive intermolecular forces. As in previous work on Ar[sub 2]-HCl, it is found that a very important nonadditive term arises from the interaction between the permanent multipoles of the HF molecule and the exchange quadrupole caused by distortion of the two Ar atoms as they overlap. An improved model of this term is described.« less
  • The interaction of helium atoms with ground state O/sub 2/ molecules is examined over a wide range of internuclear distances that fully sample the extension of the shallow well region. A previous multiproperty study of its spherical part is extended to obtain the shape of its anisotropic behavior accurately by a best-fit procedure which involves very precise state-to-state measurements of rotationally inelastic cross sections and IOSA calculations of total and partial differential cross sections. The final form of the interaction is discussed and analyzed with respect to previous findings for similar systems.
  • Previous work relating the long-range interaction energy to scattering functions, via the charge-density susceptibility, is extended to two interacting Ne atoms. It is shown that, within the closure approximation, the second order dispersion and polarization energies can be formulated in terms of generalized scattering functions, which for uncorrelated (e.g., Hartree--Fock) atomic functions can be expressed rigorously in terms of ''orbital'' form factors which are the Fourier transforms of the one-electron densities. We calculate the dispersion and polarization energies, using a distance-dependent mean excitation energy, which we evaluate with the aid of overlap integrals, and known values of the collision diametermore » and atomic polarizabilities. We obtain the total potential energy curve in two ways: (1) by adding the first order Coulomb and exchange energies to the second order dispersion and polarization energies, and (2) by adding the diatom SCF interaction energies to the dispersion energies. The potential curves so obtained are in very good agreement with previous experimental and theoretical values.« less
