The Collaboratory for Multi-scale Chemical Science (CMCS) is developing a powerful informatics-based approach to synthesizing multi-scale information in support of systems-based research and is applying it within combustion science. An open source multi-scale informatics toolkit is being developed that addresses a number of issues core to the emerging(More)
The goal of the Collaboratory for the Multi-scale Chemical Sciences (CMCS) [1] is to develop an informatics-based approach to synthesizing multi-scale chemistry information to create knowledge in the chemical sciences. CMCS is using a portal and metadata-aware content store as a base for building a system to support inter-domain knowledge exchange in(More)
In an attempt to improve on our earlier W3 theory [A. D. Boese et al., J. Chem. Phys. 120, 4129 (2004)] we consider such refinements as more accurate estimates for the contribution of connected quadruple excitations (T4), inclusion of connected quintuple excitations (T5), diagonal Born-Oppenheimer corrections (DBOC), and improved basis set extrapolation(More)
Photoelectron velocity map imaging is combined with one- and two-photon ionization to study the near threshold photoionization of the 2-butyne molecule. In this region, the photoabsorption and photoionization cross sections display a very intense broad feature that is assigned to an l = 4, π(g) shape resonance. The effect of this shape resonance on the(More)
The nuclear shielding anisotropy and shielding tensor components calculated using the hybrid density functional B3PW91 are reported for a model set of compounds comprised of N2, NH3, CH4, C2H4, HCN and CH3CN. An estimation of density functional theory (DFT) and Hartree-Fock complete basis-set limit (CBS) parameters from a 2 (3) point exact fit vs.(More)
The Knowledge Environment for Collaborative Science (KnECS) is an open source informatics toolkit designed to enable knowledge grids that interconnect science communities, unique facilities, data, and tools. KnECS features a web portal with team and data collaboration tools, lightweight federation of data, provenance tracking, and multi-level support for(More)
In this paper we report our work on the integration of existing scientific applications using Grid Services. We describe a general architecture that provides access to these applications via Web services-based application factories. Furthermore, we demonstrate how such services can interact with each other. These interactions enable a level of integration(More)
Through the use of the Active Thermochemical Tables approach, the best currently available enthalpy of formation of HO2 has been obtained as delta(f)H(o)298 (HO2) = 2.94 +/- 0.06 kcal mol(-1) (3.64 +/- 0.06 kcal mol(-1) at 0 K). The related enthalpy of formation of the positive ion, HO2+, within the stationary electron convention is delta(f)H(o)298 (HO2+) =(More)
Active Thermochemical Tables (ATcT) are a good example of a significant breakthrough in chemical science that is directly enabled by the U.S. DOE SciDAC initiative. ATcT is a new paradigm of how to obtain accurate, reliable, and internally consistent thermochemistry and overcome the limitations that are intrinsic to the traditional sequential approach to(More)
Effects of increased basis-set size as well as a correlated treatment of the diagonal Born-Oppenheimer approximation are studied within the context of the high-accuracy extrapolated ab initio thermochemistry (HEAT) theoretical model chemistry. It is found that the addition of these ostensible improvements does little to increase the overall accuracy of HEAT(More)
