Potential energy surface of the CO2-N2 van der Waals complex S. Nasri, Y. Ajili, N. E. Jaidane [et.al.]

Contributor(s): Nasri, Sameh | Jaidane, Nejm Eddine | Kalugina, Yulia N | Halvick, Philippe | Stoecklin, Thierry | Hochlaf, Majdi | Ajili, YosraMaterial type: ArticleArticleSubject(s): поверхность потенциальной энергии | Ван-дер-Ваальса взаимодействия | азот | углекислый газGenre/Form: статьи в журналах Online resources: Click here to access online In: Journal of chemical physics Vol. 142, № 17. P. 174301-1-174301-8Abstract: Four-dimensional potential energy surface (4D-PES) of the atmospherically relevant CO2–N2 van der Waals complex is generated using the explicitly correlated coupled cluster with single, double, and perturbative triple excitation (CCSD(T)-F12) method in conjunction with the augmented correlation consistent triple zeta (aug-cc-pVTZ) basis set. This 4D-PES is mapped along the intermonomer coordinates. An analytic fit of this 4D-PES is performed. Our extensive computations confirm that the most stable form corresponds to a T-shape structure where the nitrogen molecule points towards the carbon atom of CO2. In addition, we located a second isomer and two transition states in the ground state PES of CO2–N2. All of them lay below the CO2 + N2 dissociation limit. This 4D-PES is flat and strongly anisotropic along the intermonomer coordinates. This results in the possibility of the occurrence of large amplitude motions within the complex, such as the inversion of N2, as suggested in the recent spectroscopic experiments. Finally, we show that the experimentally established deviations from the C2v structure at equilibrium for the most stable isomer are due to the zero-point out-of-plane vibration correction.
