```Dear David,

for the process you are calculating it looks correct to me.  But certainly the N2(+) + H+ product is much lower in energy, right? Then both of your reactions just correspond to proton affinities (of N2 and N2+, respectively).

regards,

Hello,

I am trying to calculate bond dissociation energy (BDE) for the following reaction
N-N-H(2+) --> N-N(2+) + H
using both CCSD(T) and full valence MRCI methods. Because H-atom has only one electron I am using SCF energy for it. BDE I got is around 205 kcal/mol  which looks too large for me (for example, BDE of the following reaction N-N-H(+) --> N-N + H(+) is 116.9 kcal/mol). You can see inputs below. What I am doing wrong?

Thank you in advance  David
