Re^3: A query regarding PCM solvation energies when two separated solutes are present in the same system

Dear Pedro,

I've looked at the system and am not sure what causes the discrepancy you observe with the radical:superoxide system. Have you tried to calculate this system at the HF or MP2 level? That may provide some clue as to the origin of this effect (i.e. whether or not it is B3LYP+PCM related).


Kind regards,
Thom

>>Regarding the solvation energy for LiF dissociation: have you taken into consideration that LiF dissociates homolytically in the gas phase but into an ion pair when in solution? As such, I think you cannot obtain solvation energies by simply comparing gas phase and solvation phase calculations.
