    • Abstract


      The effect of replacing the hydrogen atoms in thioformaldehyde by halogen atoms (F, Cl) on the ionisation potential of the non-bonding electron is analysed by using the Hellman-Feynman theorem, regarding the nuclear charge of the substituent as a parameter in the many-electron Hamiltonian. The trends predicted by our theory nicely agree with the relevant ionisation potentials computed either by applying Koopmans’ theorem or by the ΔESCF method. For the carbonyls, avaible experimental data indicate the reliability of our prediction.
