Paper Abstract

By summing the rotational strength moments, R(q) = Σn(En-Eo)q R-on M-no (q=0...6), over all transitions in an optically active molecule one may obtain expressions explicitly dependent upon nuclear geometry, atomic charges, and local atomic anisotropy. In this work the resulting terms are analysed and ultimately applied to individual transitions as well as dispersion. In the framework of SCF molecular orbital theory coupled oscillator, local atomic orbital distortion, and inherent dissymmetry contributions are identified and their relative magnitudes estimated. A significant conclusion reached is that if the SCF orbitals can be localized, then the traditional correlation expressions are qualitatively correct for the dispersion, while both SCF ( independent electron) and CI (coupled oscillator) terms are often of equal importance for individual transitions.
