A technique for calculation of the electric multipole moments and higher molecular polarizabilities is described. The dipole, quadrupole, octupole, hexadecapole moments and the dipole, dipole-quadrupole, dipole–octupole, quadrupole–quadrupole polarizabilities of H2, O2, N2, CO2, CO, CN, HCl, HCN, NaCl, OH, N2H+, CH4, H2O molecules have been calculated using ab initio methods (R)CCSD(T) and CCSD(T) of high level with different aug-ccVXZ bases (X = Q, 5).
