Abstract
In this contribution we report on a study of structure changes of cyclic molecules, naphthalene in three states: normal, fully and partly ionized, in the temperature range from 100° to 1200° C for a normal and from 100 K to 1000 K for the ionized forms. We have used a new molecular dynamics with charges at bonds and have studied time dependence of interatomic distances at these temperatures. It was found that the interatomic distances can serve as a criterion for conformation transitions between different conformations. Explanation is based on the theory of stability and the theory of parametric resonance.
