A theoretical study of the low-lying electronic states of the AlCCH radical and its ions.

The AlCCH radical is a photolysis product of the aluminum-acetylene adducts and has been considered as a molecule with potential interest in astrophysics. In this study, the low-lying electronic states of the AlCCH radical, cation, and anion have been studied by using complete active space self-consistent field and multiconfigurational second-order… CONTINUE READING
