All results from a given calculation for ClNO2 (Nitryl chloride)

using model chemistry: MP2/cc-pV(T+d)Z

States and conformations

State Conformation minimum conformation conformer description state description
1 1 yes C2V 1A1
Energy calculated at MP2/cc-pV(T+d)Z
Energy at 0K-664.484313
Energy at 298.15K 
Nuclear repulsion energy153.812667
The energy at 298.15K was derived from the energy at 0K and an integrated heat capacity that used the calculated vibrational frequencies.
