Abstract : The object of this research is to characterize the energetics, spectroscopic properties, and elementary chemical reactions (including unimolecular reactions) of the oxygen ring molecules O4 and O12 and related species. The approach used will exploit recent developments in ab initio molecular quantum mechanics. In a collaborative effort with ongoing experimentat research to identify and synthesize high energy density molecules, excited electronic states and positive ions of these species will be studied.
