Vibrational Properties of the Isotopomers of the Water Dimer Derived from Experiment and Computations

Vibrational Properties of the Isotopomers of the Water Dimer Derived from Experiment and... The water dimer and its 11 deuterated isotopomers are investigated utilizing coupled cluster theory and experimental data as input for a perturbational determination of the isotopomer frequencies. Deuterium substitution reduces the H-bond stretching frequency by maximally 12 cm –1 from 143 to 131 cm –1 , which makes a spectroscopic differentiation of H- and D-bonds difficult. However, utilizing the 132 frequencies obtained in this work, the identification of all isotopomers is straightforward. The CCSD(T)/CBS value of the binding energy D e is 5.00 kcal mol –1 . The binding energy D 0 of the water dimer increases upon deuterium substitution from 3.28 to maximally 3.71 kcal mol –1 reflecting a decrease in the zero point energy contribution. The entropy values of the D-isotopomers increase from 73 to 77 entropy units in line with the general observation that a mass increase leads to larger entropies. All 12 isotopomers possess positive free binding energies at 80 K and a reduced pressure of 110 Pa, which means that they can be spectroscopically observed under these conditions.
