Abstract: The molecular structure and infrared spectrum of the atmospheric pollutant 3,3-dichloro-1,1,1-trifluoropropane (HCFC-243) were characterized experimentally and theoretically. The theoretical calculations show the existence of two conformers, with the gauche (G) and trans (T) orientation around the HCCC dihedral angle. Conformer G was calculated to be more stable than form T by more than 10 kJ mol−1. In consonance with the large predicted relative energy of conformer T, only the G form was identified spectroscopically in cryogenic argon (10 K) and xenon (20 K) matrices prepared from room-temperature equilibrium vapor of the compound. The observed infrared spectra of the matrix-isolated HCFC-243 were interpreted with the aid of high-level density functional theory calculations and normal coordinate analysis. For experimental identification of the weakest IR absorption bands, the spectrum of HCFC-243 in the neat solid state at 145 K was obtained. This spectrum also confirmed the sole presence of the G conformer in the sample. Natural bond orbital and atomic charge analyses were carried out for the two conformers to shed light on the most important intramolecular interactions in the two conformers, in particular those responsible for their relative stability.

Abstract: Extended complete active space self-consistent field (CASSCF), multireference configuration interaction with singles and doubles (MR-CISD), and multireference average quadratic coupled cluster (MR-AQCC) calculations have been performed on the ground (S0) and first excited (nσ*,S1) states of the CF3Cl molecule. Full geometry optimizations have been carried out for S0 as well as “relaxed” potential energy calculations for both states, along the C–Cl bond distance. Vertical excitation energies (ΔEvertical), dissociation energies (ΔEdiss), dissociation enthalpies (ΔHdiss), and the oscillator strength (f) have also been computed. Basis set effects, basis set superposition error (BSSE), and spin-orbit and size-extensivity corrections have also been considered. The general agreement between theoretical and available experimental results is very good. The best results for the equilibrium geometrical parameters of S0 (at MR-AQCC/aug-cc-pVTZ+d level) are 1.762 and 1.323 Å, for the C–Cl and C–F bond distances, respectively, while the corresponding experimental values are 1.751 and 1.328 Å. The ∠ClCF and ∠FCF bond angles are in excellent agreement with the corresponding experimental values (110.3° and 108.6°). The best calculated values for ΔEvertical, ΔHdiss, and f are 7.63 eV [at the MR-AQCC/aug-cc-pV(T+d)Z level], 3.59 eV[MR-AQCC/aug-cc-pV(T+d)Z level+spin-orbit and BSSE corrections], and 2.74×10−3 (MR-CISD/cc-pVTZ), in comparison with the corresponding experimental values of 7.7±0.1 eV, 3.68 eV, and 3.12×10−3±2.50×10−4. The results concerning the potential energy curves for S0 and S1 show a tendency toward the nonoccurrence of crossing between these two states (in the intermediate region along the C–Cl coordinate), as the basis set size increases. Such tendency is accompanied by a decreasing well depth for the S1 state. Dynamic electronic correlation (especially at the MR-AQCC level) is also an important factor toward an absence of crossing along the C–Cl coordinate. Further investigations of a possible crossing using gradient driven techniques (at CASSCF and MR-CISD levels) seem to confirm its absence.
