Author: Morgon N.H.

Abstract: Theoretical calculations using effective core potential (ECP) based methods were performed for a large number of molecular systems related to SF 6. Hartree-Fock (HF), MP2 and QCISD(T) methods were used. The quantities computed include equilibrium molecular geometries, bond dissociation energies, and adiabatic ionization energies. Where possible these quantities are compared with information available in the literature. The equilibrium geometries produced using the ECP-based methods are in very good agreement with structures reported in the literature. For the various energy differences, corresponding to the processes listed above, the ECP-based energies reproduce the trends. In addition to calculations on individual molecules, the reaction of SF6 with CO+ was studied. The first objective was to locate the reactant ion-molecule complex, the transition state, and the product ion-molecule complex for each of these systems. In this reaction neither a transition state nor a reactant ion-molecule complex could be located using HF-based forces and energies, reaction seemed to pass without a barrier to SF5 + + FCO. The use of a CASSCF(7,7)/B0 method was required to find the reactant ion-molecule complex. Finally more detailed studies were made of how the energy and charge distribution change as the reaction proceeds from reactants to products. It was observed that the reaction SF6 + CO+ → SF5 + + FCO occurs via F- abstraction, with the electronic energy barrier of 103.86 kJ mol-1. ©2008 Sociedade Brasileira de Química.
