Abstract: The density function theory(DFT) B3LYP study on the 2-C5H10+ and 1-C5H10+ radical cations has been carried out. The molecular geometries for various conformations of the two cations were optimized at the B3LYP/6-31G(d, p), B3LYP/6-31+G(d, p), B3LYP/6-311G(d, p), and B3LYP/6-311+G(d, p) levels, and the frequency analysis calculations were performed at the B3LYP/6-311G(d, p) level. The 1-C5H10+ ion was predicted to have a nonplanar structure, which is in contrast to the previous conclusions based on ab initio calculations. Based on the B3LYP/6-311G(d, p) geometries, the proton isotropic hyperfine coupling constants (HFCCs) were calculated at the B3LYP/6-311G(d, p) and MP2(full)/6-311G(d, p) levels. The calculated HFCCs results are in good agreement with experiment and more accurate than the previous theoretical results.
