Title: Accurate anharmonic zero-point energies for some combustion-related species from diffusion Monte Carlo

Abstract

Full dimensional analytic potential energy surfaces based on CCSD(T)/cc-pVTZ calculations have been determined for 48 small combustion related molecules. The analytic surfaces have been used in Diffusion Monte Carlo calculations of the anharmonic, zero point energies. Here, the resulting anharmonicity corrections are compared to vibrational perturbation theory results based both on the same level of electronic structure theory and on lower level electronic structure methods (B3LYP and MP2).
