Title: Interpretation of potential constants: application to study of bonding forces in metal cyanide complexes and metal carbonyls

Abstract

A general discussion is presented of quadratic potential constants which describe the interatomic forces for a molecule in its equilibrium configuration, and some problems associated with the evaluation of the potential constants are described. Current bonding models of both cyanide and carbonyl complexes of the transition metals are discussed, and various constants for different complexes are tabulated. The results suggest that the usual localized molecular orbital model is deficient in discussing the bonding interactions. (BLM)
