Big Changes for Small Noncovalent Dimers: Revisiting the Potential Energy Surfaces of (P2)2 and (PCCP)2 with CCSD(T) Optimizations and Vibrational Frequencies

This article details the re-examination of low-lying stationary points on the potential energy surfaces (PESs) of two challenging noncovalent homogeneous dimers, (P2)2 and (PCCP)2. The work was motivated by the rather large differences between MP2 …

Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Noncovalent Dimers of Formaldehyde and Thioformaldehyde: Structures, Energetics, and Vibrational Frequencies

This work provides the first characterization of five stationary points of the homogeneous thioformaldehyde dimer, (CH2S)2, and seven stationary points of the heterogeneous formaldehyde/thioformaldehyde dimer, CH2O/CH2S, with correlated *ab initio* …

Characterization of the potential energy surfaces of two small but challenging noncovalent dimers: (P2)2 and (PCCP)2

This work characterizes eight stationary points of the P2 dimer and six stationary points of the PCCP dimer, including a newly identified minimum on both potential energy surfaces. Full geometry optimizations and corresponding harmonic vibrational …
