Title: A MOLECULAR-ORBITAL APPROACH TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF VIBRATIONAL POTENTIAL FUNCTIONS: CO FORCE CONSTANT AND STRETCH-STRETCH INTERACTION CONSTANTS FOR METAL HEXACARBONYLS

Abstract

From a consideration of the molecular-orbitals of carbon monoxide it is shown that the observed CO force constants of the metal carbonyls indicate considerable metalcarbon pi bonding. The seven stretch-stretch interaction constants of the meral hexacarbonyls of octahedral symmetry are reduced to three constants using a molecularorbital development. The results are the same as those derived using a valence-bond approach. (auth)
