Adiabatic Ionization Energy

The lowest energy required to remove an electron from an atom, ion, or molecule in the gas phase.

The adiabatic ionization energy is the difference between the ground state energy of the ion formed and the energy of the original atom, molecule, or ion.

The vertical ionization energy is greater than or equal to the adiabatic ionization energy.
