Brief Communications


Conditions were found, under which an anomalous relationship should be observed in the energies of sequential ionization of molecules ("anomalous" molecules) such that a subsequent potential (In+1) is less than the preceding potential (In). These conditions are a function of the electronic vibrational instability of molecules or their ions upon change in the number of electrons in the system. An interrelationship was found with the previously proposed concept of effective electron—electron attraction in molecular systems.
