Herein, we report a comprehensive benchmark of C≡N stretching vibrations computed at harmonic and anharmonic levels with the aim of proposing and validating a reliable computational strategy to get accurate results for this puzzling vibrational mode without any ad hoc scaling factor. Anharmonic calculations employing second-order vibrational perturbation theory provide very good results when performed using the B2PLYP double-hybrid functional, in conjunction with an extended basis set and supplemented by semiempirical dispersion contributions. For larger systems, B2PLYP harmonic frequencies, together with B3LYP anharmonic corrections, offer a very good compromise between accuracy and computational cost without the need of any empirical scaling factor.
