Power Law Distribution Concerning Absolute Free Energies of Linear Sulfur Chains, Polythiazyls, Polyisoprenes, Linear trans-Polyenes, and PolyynestextjournalArticleAudranGerardautMarqueSylvain R. A.autSantelliMauriceaut10.1021/acs.jpca.8b09969After quantum calculations of absolute free energies of polyatomic sulfur derivatives or hydrocarbon oligomer compounds, we have studied the variations of G(n) as a function of the number of repeating units n (sulfur atoms or hydrocarbon units, G(n) = 2 to about 60), and observed that these values can be correlated by (a) a nearly perfect linear relationship, Gn = An + B (A and B, constants), with a high accuracy which enables an extrapolation for higher values of n, and (b) a power law:, delta G = G(n)/n - G((n-1)) /(n-1) = C/n(d) (C and d, constants). From comparison of variations of the C-C bond lengths, we show that the conjugation of trans-polyenes (up to C60H62) is more important than for polyynes (up to C60H2).WOS:000459836600013Web of Sciencejournal123713801388FEB 21 2019continuingJournal of Physical Chemistry A
