On the Assessment of Some New Meta-Hybrid and Generalized Gradient Approximation Functionals for Calculations of Anharmonic Vibrational Frequency Shifts in Hydrogen-Bonded Dimers

Abstract [en]

The performance of some recently proposed DFT functionals by Truhlar’s group (mPW1B95, mPWLYP1W,PBELYP1W, and PBE1W [Dahlke, E. E.; Truhlar, D. G. J. Phys. Chem. B 2005, 109, 317. Zhao, Y.; Truhlar,D. G. J. Phys. Chem. A 2004, 108, 6908.]) was tested primarily with respect to computation of anharmonicvibrational frequency shifts upon hydrogen bond formation in small molecular/ionic dimers. Five hydrogenbondedsystems with varying hydrogen bond strengths were considered: methanol-fluorobenzene, phenol-carbonmonoxide in ground neutral (S0) and cationic (D0) electronic states, phenol-acetylene, and phenol-benzene(+).Anharmonic OH stretching frequency shifts were calculated from the computed vibrational potentials forfree and hydrogen-bonded proton-donor molecules. To test the basis set convergence properties, all calculationswere performed with 6-31++G(d,p) and 6-311++G(2df,2pd) basis sets. The mPW1B95 functional was foundto perform remarkably better in comparison to more standard functionals (such as B3LYP, mPW1PW91,PBE1PBE) in the case of neutral dimers. In the case of cationic dimers, however, this is not always the case.With respect to prediction of anharmonic OH stretching frequency shifts upon ionization of free phenol, allDFT levels of theory outperform MP2. Some other aspects of the functional performances with respect tocomputation of interaction and dissociation energies were considered as well.
