Abstract: We present a systematic investigation of the accuracy of the various theories and basis sets that can be applied to study the interaction of Cl‾ ions with Ar atoms. It is conclusively shown that gaseous ion mobility can distinguish among theoretical ion-neutral interaction potentials. Based on the conclusions, high-level ab initio potential energy curves are obtained for all of the Cl‾–RG (RG=He–Rn) complexes. Spectroscopic constants have been derived from these potentials and are compared to a range of theoretical and experimental data, to which they generally show good agreement. General trends are discussed in comparison to other halogen-rare gas complexes previously studied. The potentials also have been tested by using them to calculate transport coefficients for Cl‾ moving through a bath of RG atoms.
