Calculated Electron Affininty for N2O (Nitrous oxide)

Experimental Electron Affinity is 0.76 ± 0.1 eV
Please note! These calculated electron affinity energies have the vibrational zero-point energy (zpe) included, but the zpe has NOT been scaled. Click on an entry for more details, including the ionization energy with a scaled zpe.
