Abstract

Abstract The intermolecular structure and correlation of GeCl 4, VCl 4 and other tetrachloride liquids can be well described by Misawa’s orientation correlation model originally applied to liquid CCl 4. The model supports on average a specific ‘corner’ to ‘face’ correlation, but evidently very different from “Apollo” type model. The Misawa model appears to work, in some respect, even better than reference interaction site model (RISM) used for long to describe intermolecular structure of such molecular systems. The test and comparison are made through the calculation of small asymmetric part of the intermolecular structure and evaluation of partial atom–atom distribution functions.
