Description: Thesis. Two polarizable ion models are developed to describe the gas phase of metal dihalide molecules. Both models use electrostatic and repulsive interactions to predict molecular geometries and molecular constants. The first model is applied to the dihalides of the alkaline earths, group II-b metals, transition metals, group IV-a metals, and europium. In addition to the molecular geometry, bending frequencies are derived for most of these molecules. The second or linear'' model is applied to the alkaline eanth dihalides; equilibrium internuclear bond lengths, stretching force constants, and stretching frequencies are determined. (LK)
