The one-dimensional model of Lippincott and Schroeder for hydrogen bond has
Been re-examined and it has been shown that O-H bond distance depends on repulsive van der Waals and attractive electrostatic potentials.it has been shown that constant b in the van der Waals repulsion potential is not transferable to all hydrogen bonds.
The possibility of obtaining the semi-empircal parameters in the Lippincott and
Schroeder potential function from OH Stretchihg frequeficies , hydrogen bond energy and geometrical parameters has been discussed
