The shape of gaseous n-butylbenzene: Assessment of computational methods and comparison with experiments


Conformational landscape of neutral and ionized n-butylbenzene has been examined. Geometries have been optimized at the B3LYP/6-31G(d), B3LYP/6-31+G(d,p), B3LYP-D/6-31+G(d,p), B2PLYP/6-31+G(d,p), B2PLYP-D/6-31+G(d,p), B97-D/6-31+G(d,p), and M06-2X/6-31+G(d,p) levels. This study is complemented by energy computations using 6-311++G(3df,2p) basis set and CBS… (More)
