With the use of the fundamental law determining the dependence of chemical bond dissociation energy on its length, all values of bond dissociation energy (BDE) U+–O, OU+–O, and U+–CO were calculated. The calculated data are in good agreement depending on integer or fractional quantum numbers. For ion U+–O bond length values are given as follows: 1.8426 and 1.8363 Aº which correspond to equatorial and axial bonds relative to the electron hole. r(OU+–O)= 1.7636Aº and r(U+–CO)= 2.4485Aº are calculated. For bond U+–CO it was shown that for the constant bond length r(U+–CO) the two experimental values (BDE) correspond to two bond types – non-polar covalent and polar donor-acceptor.
