    • Abstract


      According to the open-shell CNDO/2 calculations on ClF2, performed by using the computer programme developed by Pople, Beveridge and Dobosh, the molecule is linear and stable, with equilibrium bond length 1.507Å and binding energy −173.7 kcal/mole. The molecule has a tendency to dimerise and to disproportionate into ClF3 and ClF. The netd-orbital population in the monomer is 0.88. Bonding characteristics and other molecular properties are also discussed.
