XVII.C.1. (III.D.6.)

Calculated Ionization Energy for C7H7 (cycloheptatrienyl radical)

Experimental Ionization Energy is 0.39 ± 0.043 eV
Please note! These calculated ionizataion 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.
