Theoretical determination of the electronic ground state of the MgC molecule

The Astrophysical Journal (Impact Factor: 6.28). 02/1995; 439. DOI: 10.1086/175241

ABSTRACT Results of generalized valence bond (GVB) plus configuratiuon
interaction (CI) calculations for the potential curves and spectroscopic
constants of the two lowest lying electronic states of the MgC molecule
are presented. The (3)Sigma- state was found to be the ground
state but with the (5)Sigma- state lying very close above.
The small difference in energy and the similarity of the rotational and
vibrational spectroscopic constants must be carefully taken into account
in any experimental search for the MgC molecule.

    ABSTRACT: Spectroscopic constants and molecular properties of monocarbides AlC and SiC have been studied in their ground state using hybrid HF/DF B3LYP method. The effect of basis set on the spectroscopic constants and molecular properties has been discussed. The consistency of the calculated values of spectroscopic constants and molecular properties such as electron affinity, ionization potential and dipole moment has been obtained using four different basis sets with improved quality. The spectroscopic constants of AlC and SiC agree well with the existing experimental and theoretical values wherever available. The molecular properties of AlC and SiC are reported for the first time.

    ABSTRACT: Structure, spectroscopic constants and molecular properties of selected diatomic anions in their ground states have been studied in detail using HF/DF B3LYP method. The consistency of the calculated values of spectroscopic constants and molecular properties has been tested using four basis sets with improved quality. The spectroscopic constants and molecular properties of these diatomic ions agree well with the experimental and theoretical values wherever available. Most of the spectroscopic constants and molecular properties of these ions, in particular the spectroscopic constants of SiO−, CS− and the molecular properties of SiN−, CP−, SiO− are first reported.

    ABSTRACT: Spectroscopic constants and molecular properties of the diatomic carbides BeC, BC+, BC, NaC, and MgC in their ground states have been studied in detail using hybrid HF/DF B3LYP method. The effect of basis set on spectroscopic constants and molecular properties have been studied systematically with the improvement of the quality of the basis set from cc-pVDZ to cc-pV5Z. These results have been extrapolated to the complete basis set (CBS) limit. The spectroscopic constants of these diatomic carbides agree very well with the experimental and theoretical results wherever available for comparison. Most of the spectroscopic constants of BC, BC+, and NaC and the molecular properties of these carbides are first reported.
