We report an investigation of the suitability of quantum embedding for modeling the effects of the environment on the X-ray photoelectron spectra of hydrogen chloride and the chloride ions adsorbed on ice surfaces, as well as of chloride ions in water droplets. In our approach, we combine a density functional theory (DFT) description of the ice surface with that of the halogen species with the recently developed relativistic corevalence separation equation of motion coupled cluster (CVS-EOM-IP… 


Predictive Simulations of Ionization Energies of Solvated Halide Ions with Relativistic Embedded Equation of Motion Coupled Cluster Theory.
A subsystem approach for obtaining electron binding energies in the valence region is presented and applied to the case of halide ions in water, indicating that one can accurately capture both the large solvent effect observed for the halides and the splitting of their ionization signals due to the increasingly large spin-orbit coupling across the series at an affordable computational cost.
Relativistic EOM-CCSD for Core-Excited and Core-Ionized State Energies Based on the Four-Component Dirac-Coulomb(-Gaunt) Hamiltonian.
The results show that the X2C molecular mean-field approach, based on four-component Dirac-Coulomb mean- field calculations (2DCM), is capable of providing core excitations and ionization energies that are nearly indistinguishable from the reference four- component energies for up to and including fifth-row elements.
On the Performance of Delta-Coupled-Cluster Methods for Calculations of Core-Ionization Energies of First-Row Elements.
With the consideration of basis-set effects and the corrections to the CVS approximation, ΔCCSD(T) has been shown to provide highly accurate results for absolute values of core-ionization energies, with MaxAE of 0.22 eV and SD of 0-13 eV.
Adsorption of HCl on the water ice surface studied by X-ray absorption spectroscopy.
It is suggested that the weakening of the ice surface hydrogen-bond network after the initial HCl adsorption phase facilitates the generation of new dissociation/solvation sites, which increases the uptake capacity of ice.
Classical and quantum studies of the photodissociation of a HX (X=Cl,F) molecule adsorbed on ice.
The purpose of this paper is to compare the photodissociation dynamics of the two molecules which are adsorbed on the ice surface with different equilibrium geometries and provides evidence for typical quantum effects and reveals rainbow structures.
Structure and dynamics of ice Ih films upon HCl adsorption between 190 and 270 K. II. Molecular dynamics simulations
Classical molecular dynamics simulations are carried out between 190 and 250 K on an ultrathin ice film doped by HCl deposition with a coverage varying from 0.3 to 1.0 monolayer. These conditions are
A scaled CIS(D) based method for the calculation of valence and core electron ionization energies.
It is shown that by introducing a virtual orbital subspace that consists of a single "ghost" orbital, valence electron ionization energies can be computed using a scaled CIS(D) approach with an accuracy comparable with considerably more computationally intensive methods.
Solvatochromic shifts from coupled-cluster theory embedded in density functional theory.
A first implementation of an embedded coupled-cluster in density-functional theory (CC-in-DFT) scheme for electronic excitations, where only the response of the active subsystem is taken into account, makes it possible to investigate environment effects with specific interactions at coupled-Cluster level of theory at a cost comparable to that of calculations of the individual subsystems in vacuum.
Coupled-cluster based approach for core-level states in condensed phase: Theory and application to different protonated forms of aqueous glycine.
The results demonstrate that chemical shifts are very sensitive to the solvent interactions and that explicit treatment of a solvent, such as within EFP framework, is essential for achieving quantitative accuracy.
Solvent dependence of the electronic structure of I(-) and I3(-).
The experimentally determined solvent-induced binding energy shifts (SIBES) for the monatomic I(–) anion are compared to predictions from simple Born theory, PCM calculations, as well as multiconfigurational quantum chemical spectral calculations from geometries obtained through molecular dynamics of solvated clusters.
