C2: An Asymmetric Specie ?
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
The present work is another contribution to a better understanding of the chemical bond in C2. Several density functional approach/basis set provided calculated IR and Raman spectra with simultaneous active bands. Hence, the hypothesis of electronic asymmetry in C2  was reinforced.
