The study involves finding exact eigenvalues of the radial Schrödinger equation for new expansion of the anharmonic potential energy function. All analytical calculations employ the mathematical formalism of the supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The novelty of this study is underlined by the fact that for the first time the recurrence formulas for rovibrational bound energy levels have been derived employing factorization method and algebraic approach. The ground state and the excited states have been determined by means of the hierarchy of the isospectral Hamiltonians. The Riccati nonlinear differential equation with superpotentials has been solved analytically. It has been shown that exact solutions exist when the potential and superpotential parameters satisfy certain supersymmetric constraints. The results obtained can be utilized both in computations of quantum chemistry and theoretical spectroscopy of diatomic molecules.
