Abstract: State-of-the-art ab initio calculations have been carried out on the X̃1A1, ã3B1 and Ã1B1 states of CCl2 and the X̃2B1 state of CCl2 1. Franck-Condon factors including anharmonicity have been calculated, between the CCl2 states, and between the CCl2 - X̃2B1 state and the CCl2 states. They are used to simulate the Ã-X̃ single-vibronic-level (SVL) emission spectra of CCl2 determined by M.-L. Lui et al. [PCCP 2003, 5, 352] and the 364 nm laser photodetachment spectrum of CCl2 - obtained by R. L. Schwartz et al. [J. Phys. Chem. A 1999, 103, 8213]. Comparison between simulated and observed spectra confirms the vibrational assignments of the X̃2B1 SVL emission spectra and the T0 position of the Ã1B1 state of CCl2. For the photodetachment spectrum of CCl2 -, spectral simulation shows that the higher binding energy ã3B1 (CCl 2)→X̃2B1(CCl2 -) band is well separated from the X̃1A1 (CCl2)→X̃2B1(CCl2 -) bond. It is concluded that the observed second band, which overlaps heavily with the X̃1A1(CCl 2)→X̃2B1 (CCl2 -) band in the photodetachment spectrum of CCl2 - cannot be assigned to the CCl2(ã3B 1)+e→CCl2 -(X̃2B 1) detachment process. Further ab initio calculations carried out in the present investigation support the suggestion that the second band in the 364 nm photodetachment spectrum of CCl2 - is due to detachment from an excited state of CCl2 -, a linear quartet state, to a triplet state of CCl2. These calculations identify the anionic state to be the lowest 4 Σg (4Σ -) state, which photodetaches vertically to the 3Σ g (3Σ-; adiabatically ã3B1) and/or 3Πu ( 3Π) states of CCl2 to give the second band observed in the 364 nm photodetachment spectrum of CCl2 -.
