    Conformers of water anionic pentamer cluster (H[sub 2]O)[sub 5][sup -] have been reported here in using ab initio as well as density functional methods. Relative stabilities of these conformers obtained from inclusion of electron correlation at various levels indicate that they are very close in...

    There is concern within theoretical chemistry that density functional methods are fundamentally in error for negative ions. We have tested this hypothesis by evaluating electron affinities for F and F2 with a variety of density functionals and extremely large, diffuse basis sets. In addition, we...
