FIG. 1.

Geometries of the stationary points on the potential energy surface of -TFA obtained at the B3LYP/aug-cc-pVDZ level of theory. The numerical values of the imaginary frequencies associated with transition state structures are given in parentheses. For TS I the imaginary frequency corresponds to the in-plane waging motion of the water molecule. For TS II the imaginary frequencies correspond to a rock and a waging motion of the water molecule. For TS III the imaginary frequency corresponds to a motion of the waging water molecule. For the imaginary frequency corresponds to an OH wag motion.

Average cubic matrix elements for . B3LYP/aug-cc-pVDZ results (x), results obtained using the scaling relation given by Eq. (5) with and (open circles). The transition parameter, , obtained with values from the electronic structure calculations (squares) as well as using the scaling relation (circles) is also plotted. The arrows indicate the appropriate axis.

FIG. 5.

Value of the transition parameter, , defined by Eq. (4), calculated using anharmonicity terms only through third-order (open circles), fourth-order (squares), fifth-order (triangles), and eighth-order (X). The curve obtained allowing for contributions to all orders is given by the filled circles. The arrow indicates the position of the IVR threshold where .

FIG. 6.

RRKM theory rate calculated assuming a barrier (solid) and a barrier (dashed) for TFA- water shuttling (black) and the reverse reaction (gray). The fastest vibrational energy transfer rates from intermolecular modes to TFA modes are shown for each conformer. These correspond to the mode of TFA- (dotted) and the mode of TFA- (dot dashed). Arrows indicate the appropriate axis.
