Abstract
An ab initio molecular orbital method has been applied to investigation of molecular properties and equilibrium geometries for hexahydroxybenzene triscarbonate (C9O9) and its analogous cyclic compounds (C9S9, C9O6S3, C9O3S6). In these works, the optimized geometry of each compound has been obtained at HF and MP2 levels. These results have shown that the optimized geometries of these compounds prefer D3h planar structure to C3v bowl structure. Calculations of harmonic vibrational frequencies have been also carried out at HF/3-21G* level to analyze normal modes of these compounds. Bonding characters of these compounds are studied by Mulliken and natural populations obtained at HF/6-31G* level. We have also studied the structures and the populations of C6O6 and C6S6 at HF and MP2 levels which are obtained by pyrolyses of C9O9 and analogous compounds. In addition, the single point calculations have been performed to predict the approximate energy barrier for pyrolysis of each compound.
