Abstract [en]

In contrast to the OH stretching frequencies of bound H2O molecules, which are always found at lower wave numbers compared to the free molecule, the experimentally determined frequency of the OH- ion can be either lower or higher than the free-ion value. Optimized geometries and fundamental stretching frequency of OH- have been calculated here by ab initio methods at the Hartree-Fock and second-order Moller-Plesset levels for a number of cation-OH-, HOH...OH-, cation-OH-.q-, and cation-OH-.OH2 complexes for Li+, Mg2+, and Al3+. The importance of electrostatic effects on the OH- frequency has been assessed by comparison with calculations of different point-charge and homogenous-field OH- systems. As long as the interaction is not dominated by electronic overlap, the frequency shift is found to be largely determined by electrostatic forces: with increasing field strength the OH- frequency rises to a maximum and then decreases. The OH- dipole moment and Mulliken charges vary monotonically with the field strength, whereas the equilibrium OH distance goes through a minimum and the bond electron density through a maximum. In strongly polarizing fields, such as in the optimized Al3+.OH- and Mg2+.OH-...OH2 systems, the OH- frequency falls below the free-ion value. Ar experimentally observed frequency downshift for an OH- ion in the condensed phase cannot be used as a criterion for the existence of H bonding. The OH- ion acts as an H-bond donor only when strongly polarized by a neighbor on its oxygen side.
