Abstract

A variational SCF treatment based on a perturbational concept is developed and applied to the interaction between trans-polyacetylene and a small molecule. The validity of the present method is examined by comparing the results with those from the conventional tight-binding SCF crystal orbital method. The interaction energies and charge distributions obtained are in good agreement between the two methods. This result suggests that the present variational approach is promising for application to complicated interactions between a polymer and impurities.
