Title

High-Level, First-principles, Full-dimensional Quantum Calculation of the Ro-vibrational Spectrum of the Simplest Criegee Intermediate (CH2OO)

Abstract

The ro-vibrational spectrum of the simplest Criegee intermediate (CH 2OO) has been determined quantum mechanically based on nine-dimensional potential energy and dipole surfaces for its ground electronic state. the potential energy surface is fitted to more than 50 000 high-level ab initio points with a root-mean-square error of 25 cm-1, using a recently proposed permutation invariant polynomial neural network method. the calculated rotational constants, vibrational frequencies, and spectral intensities of CH2OO are in excellent agreement with experiment. the potential energy surface provides a valuable platform for studying highly excited vibrational and unimolecular reaction dynamics of this important molecule. © 2014 American Chemical Society.
