CCSD(T) state-of-the-art ab initio calculations are used to determine a vibrationally corrected three-dimensional potential energy surface of dimethyl-ether depending on the two methyl torsions and the COC bending angle. The surface is employed to obtain variationally the lowest vibrational energies that can be populated at very low temperatures. The(More)
We determined the energies for ro-vibrational transitions of fluoromethylidynium (CF(+)) using a numerical variational approach and a Potential Energy Function calculated with the internally contracted multireference configuration interaction method including also the Davidson correction (MRCI+Q). For this purpose, all the CSFs built the full valence space(More)
Highly correlated ab initio methods (CCSD(T) and RCCSD(T)-F12) are employed for the spectroscopic characterization of the gas phase of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) at low temperatures. DMC, a relevant molecule for atmospheric and astrochemical studies, shows only two conformers, cis-cis and trans-cis, respectively, of C2v and Cs symmetries. cis-cis-DMC(More)
In this paper, the structure and spectroscopic parameters of the C5 cluster are determined using multiconfigurational quantum chemical methods as implemented in the MOLCAS software. A number of spectroscopic properties (band center positions, l-doubling parameters, and rotational constants) have been characterized. From the new results, the assignments of(More)
Rotational excitation of the interstellar species SO(X3Sigma-) with H2 is investigated. The authors present a new four-dimensional potential energy surface for the SO-H2 system, calculated at an internuclear SO distance frozen at its experimental minimum energy distance. It was obtained at the RCCSD(T) level using the aug-cc-pVTZ basis sets for the four(More)
Various ab initio methods are used to compute the six dimensional potential energy surfaces (6D-PESs) of the ground states of the H(2)NSi and H(2)SiN radicals. They include standard coupled cluster (RCCSD(T)) techniques and the newly developed explicitly correlated RCCSD(T)-F12 methods. For H(2)NSi, the explicitly correlated techniques are viewed to provide(More)
We describe a simple way of obtaining numerically the manifold of energies for ro-vibrational transitions for a centrifugally distorted oscillator, starting from the potential energy of the non-rotating oscillator calculated by an accurate ab initio method. It is shown that the energies so obtained compare well with those obtained variationally. The species(More)
Highly correlated ab initio methods are used for the spectroscopic characterization of ethyl mercaptan (CH3CH2 (32)SH, ETSH) and dimethyl sulfide (CH3 (32)SCH3, DMS), considering them on the vibrational ground and excited torsional states. Since both molecules show non-rigid properties, torsional energy barriers and splittings are provided. Equilibrium(More)
The SO(2) molecule is detected in a large variety of astronomical objects, notably molecular clouds and star-forming regions. An accurate modeling of the observations needs a very good knowledge of the collisional excitation rates with H(2) because of competition between collisional and radiative processes that excite and quench the different rotational(More)
The low temperature spectra of the detectable species methyl hydroperoxide (CH3OOH) and three sulfur analogs, the two isomers of methanesulfenic acid (CH3SOH and CH3OSH) and the methyl hydrogen disulfide (CH3SSH), are predicted from highly correlated ab initio methods (CCSD(T) and CCSD(T)-F12). Rotational parameters, anharmonic frequencies, torsional energy(More)
