Abstract

The structure of ClO-3M+ ion pairs (M = Li, Na) has been examined with the aid of ab initio molecular orbital calculations. The calculations support recent experimental findings that ClO-3 M ion paris have C3v rather than Cs configurations. Results from these studies also show that the metal cation prefers to coordinate at the base of the chlorate anion pyramidal structure along the C3 axis. Calculated vibrational frequencies, intensities, isotopic frequency shifts, and isotopic substituted frequency and intensity patterns render support to this conclusion. New vibrational assignments of observed and some unassignable bands from previous matrix-isolation and molten gas phase spectroscopic studies of ClO-3M+ ion pairs are provided.
