Resonant frequency of an object: A frequency at which the object will best capture and retain energy from a driving force. Driving energy into an object or system with a force at the natural frequency of the object will maximize energy transfer.
The resonant, frequency is the frequency at which an object tends to vibrate. Every rigid object in existence has a natural structural resonance frequency, a frequency at which it, metaphorically speaking, wants to shake more than any other. If you vibrate an object at its resonant frequency, it will gradually shake more and more wildly. This frequency ...
In chemist's terms you are looking for the ionization energy of the molecule. I imagine most standard quantum chemistry programs should be able to calculate this. If you have access, try out Gaussian. Otherwise Orca is a great quantum chemistry binary that is freely available. Both resources have great manuals.
