Calculated Ionization Energy for C4H2 (Diacetylene)

Experimental Ionization Energy is 10.17 ± 0.02 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.
