The charge-transfer energetics of interactions in a series of closed-shell cation-inert gas pairs is studied by using a model based on the electronegativity equalization principle. These results arc compared with those obtained from SCF calculations carried out at the STO-3G level. A model interaction potential is tested for these systems. The possible effect of an additional electrostatic factor in the charge transfer process is investigated.
