Abstract: Accurate quartic anharmonic force fields for CF4 and SiF4 have been calculated using the CCSD(T) method and basis sets of spdf quality. Based on the ab initio force field with a minor empirical adjustment, the vibrational energy levels of these two molecules and their isotopomers are calculated by means of high order Canonical Van Vleck Perturbation Theory (CVPT) based on curvilinear coordinates. The calculated energies agree very well with the experimental data. The full quadratic force field of CF4 is further refined to the experimental data. The symmetrization of the Cartesian basis for arbitrary combination bands of T-d group molecules is discussed using the circular promotion operator for the doubly degenerate modes, together with tabulated vector coupling coefficients. The extraction of the spectroscopic constants from our second order transformed Hamiltonian in curvilinear coordinates is discussed, and compared to a similar procedure in rectilinear coordinates.
