Abstract

A compact and efficient scaled single‐zeta basis set has been developed for use in conjunction with the coreless Hartree–Fock silicon effective potential. The scale factors were determined by minimizing the electronic energy of the disilane molecule. Based upon a generalized valence bond computation using this basis, we conclude that the classical concept of localized σ bonds is adequate to fully explain the electronic structure of disilane in analogy to the ethane molecule.
