Title: THE POTENTIAL ENERGY SURFACE FOR THE HYDROGEN BOND IN THE HYDROGEN FLUORIDE DIMER
Creators: Howard, B. J.
Issue Date: 1975
Abstract: The molecular beam electric resonance spectra of (HF)$_{2}$ (DF)$_{2}$, and HFDF have been used to obtain accurate values for their rotational constants, electric dipole moments, and hyperfine constants. These provide effective structures for these non-rigid molecules. The hydrogen bond is shown to be longer than the corresponding deuterium bond. The large centrifugal distortion is interpreted semi-classically to provide a potential energy surface for the bending and stretching of the hydrogen bond.
