Isomers of cyanodiacetylene: Theoretical structures and IR spectra

Coupled-clusters CCSD(T)/cc-pVTZ calculations have been carried out on several lowest energy isomers of cyanodiacetylene H–CC–CC–CN, previously selected in an extensive DFT study. Apart from the izonitrile H–CC–CC–NC, branched species CC(H)CCCN and CCCC(H)CN are found to be of particular importance, less stable than cyanodiacetylene by 48.5 and 51.0 kcal/mol, respectively. Harmonic frequencies and IR absorption intensities of vibrational fundamentals were predicted at the B3LYP/aug-cc-pVTZ level.
