Theoretical computations were carried out on the molecular complex between methanol and carbon dioxide. These calculations explain the broadening of the 15 μm spectral feature observed in interstellar ices. This feature is assigned to the bending of C–O of the carbon dioxide and we confirm that the broadening is compatible with methanol interactions of the electron donor acceptor type. Extra interactions are also investigated and can be implied in the broadening.
