Three of them are relevant for astrophysics and astrochemistry. These computations are performed using highly correlated ab initio methods and the aug-cc-pVXZ (X=T,Q) basis sets. In addition to the linear isomers, we predict the existence of several cyclic and branched forms for these molecules. For all the molecular species of interest here, sets of spectroscopic parameters are determined with perturbation theory, which compare quite well with experiment. For l-C4H-(X1Σ+), the quartic force field is computed at the coupled cluster level of theory. This force field is derived from full nine-dimensional potential energy surface generated close to the equilibrium geometry of this anion. Finally, we treat the thermochemistry of the hydrogen attachment and the electron attachment reactions that may lead to the formation of the C4H- from either C-4 or C4H. Description: Electronic structure calculations have been achieved with the MOLPRO program suite (MOLPRO version 2002). The search of stationary points and determination of first-order spectroscopic parameters were performed at the coupled cluster including perturbative treatment of triple excitations ((R)CCSD(T); Knowles et al. 1993JChPh..99.5219K) and at the complete active space self consistent field (CASSCF; Knowles et al. 2000JChPh.112.3106K) levels. For these computations, the Dunning's basis sets including diffuse functions were employed (Dunning 1989JChPh..90.1007D; Kendall et al. 1992JChPh..96.6796K). The main group of spectroscopic parameters of the l-C4H- anion has been calculated with second-order perturbation theory applied on the quadratic, cubic, and quartic force fields derived from a CCSD(T)/aug-cc-pVQZ nine-dimensional potential energy surface (PES) and the code FIT-ESPEC (Senent 2007ApJ...670.1510S). For CASSCF calculations, the active space was defined considering all the π orbitals. File Summary:

Note (1): When "k" and "l" are zero the force field is anharmonic quartic. When just "l" is zero the force field is cubic and when neither "k" and "l" are zero the force field is quartic.
