Hydrogen bonding and the Compton profile of water

View publication


The effect of the hydrogen bond interaction on the Compton profile for water is estimated by observing the consistent trend in the water polymer (monomer, dimer, trimer, tetramer and pentamer) profiles obtained from various quality wavefunctions. The profile of the isolated water molecule is found to be lowered by hydrogen bonding.
