Calculations on the force constants of triatomic group II metal halides

  • I. Eliezer
  • A. Reger


A comparison between various polarizable ion models for calculating bending force constants of linear MX2 molecules is presented. A convergence test is applied to the models. Further, the contribution of an induced dipole-induced quadrupole interaction term to the force constant, is examined. The criteria for a useful comparison between calculated and experimental values of force constants are discussed.
