In this paper we extend to rock salt, CsCl, diamond and zinc blende structured solids with conduction d electrons the calculation of ground state properties such as bulk modulus and cohesive energy using the plasmon oscillations theory of solids formalism already employed for chalcopyrite semiconductors. The present method is not limited to binary or ternary compounds but can be use for all the semi-conducting and insulating compounds. The calculated values are in excellent agreement with the observed and calculated values of different researchers.
Keywords: Bulk modulus, cohesive energy and plasmon energy.
