Interrelation of Dissociation Energy and Inter-nuclear Distance for some Simple Di-Atoms in Ground States

Abstract

HAVING recently suggested1 that Dr3e (D dissociation energy, re internuclear distance) is approximately constant for C—C linkages in solid carbon and in hydrocarbons, I find further that x = Dr3en1/2 (n group number) tends to constancy, within experimental errors, for ground states of simple di-atoms of related typo (for example, LiLi, NN and OO).
