Based on the atomic andmolecular reaction statics, the ground electronic states of XOn+ (X=Ru, Rh, Pd; n=0, 1) and their corresponding dissociation limits were systematically examined. Using the density functional B3P86 method in conjunction with the LANL2DZ basis set forXatoms and aug-cc-pVTZ basis set for Oatom, we investigated molecular equilibrium geometries and dissociation energies for these systems. Analytical potential energy functions of XOn+ (X=Ru, Rh, Pd; n=0, 1)were determined using theMurrell-Sorbie function. Spectroscopic data forXOn+ (X=Ru, Rh, Pd; n=0, 1) and the first vertical ionization potentials of the neutral XO(X=Ru, Rh, Pd) moleculeswere calculated aswell.

Key words: XOn+(X=Ru, Rh, Pd, n=0, 1), Potential energy function, Vertical ionization potential
