Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Microscopic spectral shifts of the electronic spectra of heteroclusters consisting of inert-gas atoms bound to a large aromatic molecule were evaluated utilizing the multicentre monopole representation for the dispersive intermolecular interactions, which rests on the Hückel of SCF π molecular wavefunctions, in conjunction with a semi-empirical scaling of the transition monopoles. A successful application of this semi-empirical scheme for the evaluation of the spectral shifts of tetracene·Rn(R=Ar,Kr) clusters with n=1-6 correlates structural and spectroscopic data.
