Abstract [en]

The changes in the electron density distribution caused by varying the O-H bond length for HDO and OH- in uniform electric fields are investigated and related to the frequency shifts for the uncoupled O-H stretching vibration. Numerical integration of difference density maps, Delta rho=rho(r(OH)+Delta r(OH))-rho(r(OH)), reproduces the electronic contribution to theta mu(parallel to)(total)/theta r(OH), if the integration is carried out to a distance of approximate to 3.5 Angstrom from the O atom. The frequency shift Delta nu, is proportional to -E(parallel to) X[d mu(parallel to)(permanent)(r(OH))/dr(OH)]-1/2E(parallel to)[theta mu(parallel to)(induced)(E(parallel to), r(OH))/theta r(OH)] and electron density maps corresponding to the electronic parts of these terms are presented. Experimentally it has been found that the OH- ion shows a frequency upshift when bound in a moderately strong field, while water molecules show a downshift. The electron density maps show why d mu(parallel to)(permanent)(r(OH))/dr(OH) is positive for HDO and negative for OH-, resulting in a downshift for bound water an an upshift for bound OH-. For positive fields, theta mu(parallel to)(induced)/theta r(OH) is positive for both HDO and OH- and gives a downshift contribution.
