Abstract

State-of-the-art ab initio calculations have been carried out on the X(1)A(1), a(3)B(1) and A(1)B(1) states of CCl2 and the (XB1)-B-2 state of CCl2-. Franck-Condon factors including anhormonicity have been colculated, between the CCl2 states, and between the CCl2- (XB1)-B-2 state and the CCl2 states. They are used to simulate the A-X single-vibronic-level (SVL) emission spectra of CCl2 determined by MA. Lui et a]. [PCCP 2003, 5, 352] and the 364 nm laser photodetachment spectrum of CCl2- obtained by R. L. Schwartz et al. [J. Phys. Chem. A 7999, 103, 8213]. Comparison between simulated and observed spectra confirms the vibrational assignments of the (XB1)-B-2 SVL emission spectra and the T-0 position of the A(1)B(1) state of CCl2. For the photodetachment spectrum of CCl2-, spectral simulation shows that the higher binding energy 6 3 B, (CCl2) CCl2-((XB1)-B-2) detachment process. Further ab initio calculations carried out in the present investigation support the suggestion that the second band in the 364 nm photodetachment spectrum of CCl2- is due to detachment from an excited state of CCl2-, a linear quartet state, to a triplet state of CC12. These calculations identify the anionic state to be the lowest (4)Sigma(g)(-) ((4)Sigma(-)) state, which photodetaches vertically to the (3)Sigma(g)(-) ((3)Sigma(-); adiabatically a(3)B(1)) and/or (3)Pi(u) ((3)Pi) states of CCl2 to give the second band observed in the 364 nm photodetachment spectrum of CCl2-.
