Title: The Raman spectrum of the squarate (C4O4-2) anion: An ab initio basis set dependence study
Author: de Miranda, SG
Vazquez, PAM
Abstract: The Raman excitation profile of the squarate anion, C4O4-2, was calculated using ab initio methods at the Hartree-Fock using Linear Response Theory (LRT) for six excitation frequencies: 632.5, 514.5, 488.0, 457.9, 363.8 and 337.1 nm. Five basis set functions (6-31G*, 6-31+G*, cc-pVDZ, aug-cc-pVDZ and Sadlej's polarizability basis set) were investigated aiming to evaluate the performance of the 6-31G* set for numerical convergence and computational cost in relation to the larger basis sets. All basis sets reproduce the main spectroscopic features of the Raman spectrum of this anion for the excitation interval investigated. The 6-31G* basis set presented, on average, the same accuracy of numerical results as the larger sets but at a fraction of the computational cost showing that it is suitable for the theoretical investigation of the squarate dianion and its complexes and derivatives.
