III.B.3.a. (XIII.C.1.)

Precomputed vibrational scaling factors


The following tables list the vibrational frequency scaling factor as determined from data in the CCCBDB. For the associated uncertainty and the number of molecules and frequencies used to determine the vibrational frequency scaling factors see the page XIII.C.2.
To change the scaling factors (which are used when the CCCBDB calculates the vibrational contribution the thermochemical parameters) see page XIII.C.3.
