Abstract:

Rate coefficients are calculated for the energy-transfer processes that occur when HFv1,J1 molecules collide with HFv2,J2 molecules. Three-dimensional classical trajectories of the collision dynamics of these energy-transfer processes were calculated by means of a potential energy surface, which consists of a London-Eyring-Polanyi-Sato LEPS potential function for the short-range interactions and a partial-point-charge, dipole-dipole function for the long-range interactions. This energy surface was used to predict an equilibrium geometry of the HF dimer.
