|Title:||THE ROTATIONAL PARTITION-FUNCTION OF THE SYMMETRICAL TOP AND THE EFFECT OF K-DOUBLING THEREON||Authors:||MARTIN, Jan
|Issue Date:||1991||Publisher:||ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV||Source:||CHEMICAL PHYSICS LETTERS, 187(4). p. 375-386||Abstract:||McDowell's earlier derivation of the partition function for a nonrigid symmetric top has been extended with a fourth-order correction for centrifugal distortion and correction terms for K doubling. Comparison with direct numerical summation (including K-doubling effects) indicates that the inclusion of the fourth-order term is necessary to ensure high accuracy in the computed enthalpy function and heat capacity above 2000 K, as well as that the effect of K doubling is very small at practical temperatures. The only effect of any practical importance is that of d2 for molecules with fourfold symmetry: the present approximate expressions represent this effect quite well.||Notes:||UNIV INSTELLING ANTWERP,DEPT CHEM,INST MAT SCI,B-2610 WILRIJK,BELGIUM.MARTIN, JML, LIMBURG STATE UNIV CTR,DEPT SBM,UNIV CAMPUS,B-3590 DIEPENBEEK,BELGIUM.||Document URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/1942/3940||DOI:||10.1016/0009-2614(91)80268-3||ISI #:||A1991GX46000006||Type:||Journal Contribution|
