The Carbon Dioxide Molecule



The basic aspects of the reactivity of carbon dioxide (CO2) are featured in this chapter and related to the electronic structure of the molecule. The electronic properties of neutral CO2 are compared with those of the radical ions \( {\mathrm{CO}}_2^{-} \) and \( {\mathrm{CO}}_2^{+} \). The potential of a few spectroscopic techniques (infrared, ultraviolet–visible, nuclear magnetic resonance) in the characterization of CO2 states is also highlighted.
