Calculated Electron Affininty for CH3O (Methoxy radical)

Experimental Electron Affinity is 1.572 ± 0.004 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.
