Theoretical characterization of low-lying electronic states of FCO

Joseph S. Francisco, Avery N. Goldstein, Michael A. Robb, Ian H. Williams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The electronic and vibrational spectra of the fluoroformyl radical FCO are discussed in the light of ab initio (CASSCF(5 in 4)/6-31+G* and UMP2/6-311G*) calculated adiabatic and vertical transition energies, and vibrational frequencies, for the X2A′, A2A″, B2A′, and C2A″ states. Results for the formyl radical HCO are also presented for comparison.
