Abstract

A classical derivation of a dipole moment model derived earlier by a quantum mechanical implicit perturbation technique is given. This model is used to determine the bond polarities of the posttransition (Groups IIIA-VIIA) hydrides. The polarity measures the extent of charge transfer in a bond. Polarities of alkali halides and posttransition hydrides are used to illustrate the gradual change in bond polarities with nuclear charge across the periodic table.
