Accurate ab initiobased adiabatic global potential energy surface for the 2{sup 2}A″ state of NH{sub 2} by extrapolation to the complete basis set limit
Abstract
A full threedimensional global potential energy surface is reported first time for the title system, which is important for the photodissociation processes. It is obtained using double manybody expansion theory and an extensive set of accurate ab initio energies extrapolated to the complete basis set limit. Such a work can be recommended for dynamics studies of the N({sup 2}D) + H{sub 2} reaction, a reliable theoretical treatment of the photodissociation dynamics and as building blocks for constructing the double manybody expansion potential energy surface of larger nitrogen/hydrogen containing systems. In turn, a preliminary theoretical study of the reaction N({sup 2}D)+H{sub 2}(X{sup 1}Σ{sub g}{sup +})(ν=0,j=0)→NH(a{sup 1}Δ)+H({sup 2}S) has been carried out with the method of quasiclassical trajectory on the new potential energy surface. Integral cross sections and thermal rate constants have been calculated, providing perhaps the most reliable estimate of the integral cross sections and the rate constants known thus far for such a reaction.

A global manybody expansion potential energy surface is reported for the electronic ground state of CH{sub 2}{sup +} by fitting high level ab initio energies calculated at the multireference configuration interaction level with the augccpV6Z basis set. The topographical features of the new global potential energy surface are examined in detail and found to be in good agreement with those calculated directly from the raw ab initio energies, as well as previous calculations available in the literature. In turn, in order to validate the potential energy surface, a test theoretical study of the reaction CH{sup +}(X{sup 1}Σ{sup +})+H({sup 2}S)→C{sup +}({supmore »

Fulldimensional quantum calculations of vibrational levels of NH _{4} ^{+} and isotopomers on an accurate ab initio potential energy surface
Vibrational energy levels of the ammonium cation (NH _{4} ^{+}) and its deuterated isotopomers are calculated using a numerically exact kinetic energy operator on a recently developed ninedimensional permutation invariant semiglobal potential energy surface fitted to a large number of highlevel ab initio points. Like CH4, the vibrational levels of NH _{4} ^{+} and ND _{4} ^{+} exhibit a polyad structure, characterized by a collective quantum number P = 2(v _{1} + v _{3}) + v _{2} + v _{4}. As a result, the lowlying vibrational levels of all isotopomers are assigned and the agreement with available experimental data ismore »Cited by 2 
An accurate global ab initio potential energy surface for the X {sup 1}A{sup '} electronic state of HOBr
A global, analytical potential energy surface for the ground electronic state of HOBr has been determined using highly correlated multireference configuration interaction wave functions and explicit basis set extrapolations of large correlation consistent basis sets. The ab initio data have been fit to an analytical functional form that accurately includes both the HOBr and HBrO minima, as well as all dissociation asymptotes. Small adjustments to this surface are made based on the limited experimental data available and by indirectly taking into account the effects of spinorbit coupling on the OH+Br dissociation channel. Vibrational energy levels are calculated variationally for bothmore » 
Chemically accurate ab initio potential energy surfaces for the lowest {sup 3}A{prime} and {sup 3}A{double_prime} electronically adiabatic states of O({sup 3}P) + H{sub 2}
The electronic energies of the lowest {sup 3}A{prime} and {sup 3}A{double_prime} states of the O({sup 3}P) + H{sub 2} system were calculated for 951 geometries using MOLPRO. The calculations were fitted by a rotating Morse spline method and independently by a generalized LondonEyringPolanyiSato (LEPS) doublepolynomial method. A higher accuracy calculation for 112 of these geometries was also performed for both {sup 3}A{prime} and {sup 3}A{double_prime} to obtain correction potential energy surfaces (PESs) used to raise the accuracy of the original surfaces to about 0.3 kcal/mol. The resulting fitted PESs are presented and compared to each other and to a previousmore » 
A ninedimensional ab initio global potential energy surface for the H{sub 2}O{sup +} + H{sub 2} → H{sub 3}O{sup +} + H reaction
An accurate fulldimensional global potential energy surface (PES) is developed for the title reaction. While the longrange interactions in the reactant asymptote are represented by an analytical expression, the interaction region of the PES is fit to more than 81 000 of ab initio points at the UCCSD(T)F12b/AVTZ level using the permutation invariant polynomial neural network approach. Fully symmetric with respect to permutation of all four hydrogen atoms, the PES provides a faithful representation of the ab initio points, with a root mean square error of 1.8 meV or 15 cm{sup −1}. The reaction path for this exoergic reaction features anmore »
