CCSD(T) calculations of stabilities and properties of confined systems
Abstract
We analyze energies, electron affinities and polarizabilities of small anions exposed to an external confinement. The second electron in free O{sup 2−} and S{sup 2−} anions is unbound. We investigate the stabilizing effect of the spherical harmonicoscillator confining potential ω. on these anions employing the HartreeFock stability analysis as introduced by Čížek and Paldus. With increasing strength of the external harmonicoscillator confinement potential ω the broken symmetry (BS) solutions are systematically eliminated. For ω larger than 0.1 all BS solutions for O{sup 2−} disappear. For ω larger than 0.13 the CCSD(T) energy of O{sup 2−} becomes more negative than the energy of the singly charged O{sup −} anion. We relate the harmonicoscillator confining potential to a crystalline environment in which the O{sup 2−} and S{sup 2−} anions are stable. We also present a model allowing calculations of the incrystal polarizabilities of anions. The model is based on CCSD(T) calculations of static polarizabilities of selected anions exposed to the spherical harmonicoscillator confining potential ω This artificial confinement potential ω is then related to the ionic radii of the cation in representative crystal lattices. We investigate the polarizability of O{sup 2−} and S{sup 2−} anions in MgO, MgS, CaO, CaS, SrO, SrS,more »

We compare our results with alternative models for incrystal polarizabilities. External confinement also stabilizes the uracil anion U{sup −}, as is shown by calculations with a stepwise microhydration of U{sup −}. Upon hydration is the CCSD(T) adiabatic electron affinity (AEA) of uracil enhanced by about 250 up to 570 meV in comparison with AEA of the isolated molecule, depending on the geometry of the hydrated uracil anion complex. We tried to find an analogy of the stabilization effect of the external confinement on the otherwise unstable anions. In uracil and its anion is the external confinement represented by the polarized continuum solvation model with dielectric constant as a variational parameter. The physical behavior of ions exposed to an artificial external, spherical harmonicoscillator confining potential ω, the environment represented by a crystal structure and the confinement represented by the solvent, all have considerable stabilizing effect on the otherwise unstable free anion.},

In this paper the authors study the structure and relative stability of molecules of the types XOOY, XOYO, and XYO{sub 2} (where X and Y stand for Cl and Br atoms), which show atmospheric interest, and continue previous research on chlorine peroxide and triatomic species involving Cl, Br, and O. Bromine peroxide, mixed bromine and chlorine peroxides, and their isomers have been studied ab initio using both wave function and density functional theory methods. The performance of the methodologies in studying these species is analyzed. Optimized geometrics, harmonic frequencies, relative energies, and isodesmic heats of formation at 0 and 298.15more »

Structure and Heats of Formation of Iodine Fluorides and the Respective ClosedShell Ions from CCSD(T) Electronic Structure Calculations and Reliable Prediction of the Steric Activity of the FreeValence Electron Pair in ClF₆⁻, BrF₆⁻, and IF₆⁻
The research described in this product was performed in part in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a national scientific user facility sponsored by the Department of Energy's Office of Biological and Environmental Research and located at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Atomization energies at 0 K and heats of formation at 0 and 298 K are predicted for IF, IF₂, IF₂+, IF₃, IF₄, IF₄+,IF₅, IF₆, IF₆+, IF₇, IF₈, BrF₆, and ClF₆ from coupled cluster theory [CCSD(T)] calculations with effectivecore potential correlationconsistent basis sets for I. In order to achieve near chemical accuracy (±1 kcal/mol), three corrections were added to the completemore » 
Balance of Attraction and Repulsion in NucleicAcid Base Stacking: CCSD(T)/CompleteBasisSetLimit Calculations on Uracil Dimer and a Comparison with the ForceField Description
We have carried out reference quantumchemical calculations for about 100 geometries of the uracil dimer in stacked conformations. The calculations have been specifically aimed at geometries with unoptimized distances between the monomers including geometries with mutually tilted monomers. Such geometries are characterized by a delicate balance between local steric clashes and local unstacking and had until now not been investigated using reference quantummechanics (QM) methods. Nonparallel stacking geometries often occur in nucleic acids and are of decisive importance, for example, for local conformational variations in BDNA. Errors in the shortrange repulsion region would have a major impact on potential energymore » 
New XDMcorrected potential energy surfaces for Ar–NO(X{sup 2}Π): A comparison with CCSD(T) calculations and experiments
We report new potential energy surfaces for the ground state Ar–NO(X{sup 2}Π) van der Waals system calculated using the unrestricted HartreeFock (UHF) method with the addition of the BeckeRoussel correlation functional and exchangehole dipole moment dispersion correction (XDM). We compare UHFBRXDM surfaces and those previously reported by Alexander from coupled cluster CCSD(T) calculations [J. Chem. Phys. 111, 7426 (1999)]. The bound states of Ar–NO have been investigated with these new UHFBRXDM surfaces, including relative energylevel spacing, adiabatic bender states and wave functions, and spectroscopic data. These results have been found to be in good agreement with calculations based on themore » 
Absorption spectroscopy of heavy alkaline earth metals Ba and Sr in rare gas matrices—CCSD(T) calculations and atomic site occupancies
Isolation of the heavier alkaline earth metals Ba and Sr in the solid rare gases (RGs) Ar, Kr, and Xe is analysed with absorption spectroscopy and interpreted partly with the assistance of ab initio calculations of the diatomic M ⋅ RG ground state interaction potentials. The y{sup 1}P←a{sup 1}S resonance transitions in the visible spectral region are used to compare the isolation conditions of these two metal atom systems and calcium. Complex absorption bands were recorded in all three metal atom systems even after extensive sample annealing. Coupled cluster calculations conducted on the ground states of the nine M ⋅more »
