We present results of density functional calculations on ClOO using the local density approximation (LDA) and the Becke–Lee–Yang–Parr functional (BLYP). The accuracy of computed geometries and vibrational frequencies appears comparable to that achieved with very high quality single‐determinant methods [QCISD(T)].
