The most stable tautomers and rotamers of guanine are characterized by post Hartree-Fock ab initio calculations at the MP2 and CCSD(T) levels employing extended basis sets. Four of the lowest-energy structures (7H-oxo-amino- < 9H-oxo-amino- < 9H-syn-hydroxo-amino- < 9H-anti-hydroxo-amino-guanine) are found to lie within ca. 1 kcal/mol. The next form of(More)
The electronic and structural features of the Cu...SH2, Ag...SH2, and Au...SH2 complexes are investigated by using the spin-adapted restricted open-shell HF coupled cluster CCSD(T) method combined with the second-order spin-free Douglas-Kroll-Hess (DKH) relativistic approach. M...SH2 complexes are nonplanar with bonding energies -5.99, -1.99, and -9.08(More)
A method for the estimation of the energy of intramolecular hydrogen bonds in conjugated systems existing in a variety of conformations is presented. The method is applied to determine the intramolecular hydrogen bond energy in 3-aminopropenal and 3-aminopropenthial. According to the proposed estimation scheme, the intramolecular H-bond energies are found(More)
The accuracies of the calculated vibrational frequencies and Raman intensities given by two new, highly compact Pol-type basis sets, Z2PolX and Z3PolX, have been determined and compared to the 6-31G(d), PolX, and aug-cc-pVTZ basis sets. Calculation of accurate Raman intensities has previously required large basis sets, but the ZmPolX basis sets are smaller(More)
The recently determined accurate values of the nuclear quadrupole coupling constant of the Sb nucleus in SbN, SbP, SbF, and SbCl and the calculated electric-field gradients at Sb in these molecules are used to obtain the nuclear quadrupole moment of 121Sb and 123Sb. The calculation of the electric-field gradient has been carried out by using the(More)
We have carried out extensive studies on the basis set dependence of the calculated specific optical rotation (OR) in molecules at the level of the time-dependent Hartree-Fock and density functional approximations. To reach the limits of the basis set saturation, we have devised an artificial model, the asymmetrically deformed (chiral) methane (CM)(More)
Two model systems, 3-methylacroleine and 3-(difluoromethyl)acroleine, are investigated computationally with respect to the character of the C-H...O interaction in their chelate-type (ZZ) conformers. By selecting the appropriate reference conformers, the C-H...O interaction is shown to result in the increase of the C-H stretching frequency (i.e., in the blue(More)
Photochemistry deals with chemical reactions taking place in the presence of light. Immense amount of solar energy received from sun can be utilized for these reactions. The computational investigation of realistic models of organic compounds is becoming a standard practice nowadays. Computer programs can mimic the process of photochemical reactions and(More)
