CNDO/Force and compliance constant methods were applied to define general quadratic potential functions for F2CO and HCOF. A satisfactory set of compliants was obtained by suitably scaling down the stretching and stretch–stretch elements of the initial force constant matrix, evaluated by the CNDO/force approach, followed by fitting the compliants to available experimental data.
