Steady-state absorption and emission spectra were recorded by a Hitachi (U-3310) spectrophotometer and an Edinburgh (FS920) fluorimeter, respectively. Both wavelength-dependent excitation and emission response of the fluorimeter have been calibrated. DCM in methanol with Φ ~ 0.44 served as the standard for the calculation of the fluorescence quantum yields(More)
According to our theoretical approaches, a cyclic boryl anion can act as a Lewis base like its isoelectronic counterpart N-heterocyclic carbene, reducing the homolytic bond dissociation energy of B-H in BH(3). However, the donating efficiency is affected by the counter cation in both gas phase and nonpolar solvents. Moreover, we also predict the(More)
The lowest singlet and triplet potential energy surfaces for all group 15 HAsXH (X = N, P, As, Sb, and Bi) systems have been explored through ab initio calculations. The geometries of the various isomers were determined at the QCISD/LANL2DZdp level and confirmed to be minima by vibrational analysis. In the case of nitrogen, the global minimum is found to be(More)
In this study, we apply UCCSD/6-31++G** to investigate the ability of an OH radical acting as a hydrogen bond acceptor with HF, HCl, and H(2)O (HO...HX; X=F, Cl, OH) or as a hydrogen bond donor with H(2)O and H(2)S (OH...XH(2); X=O and S). We also replace OH with H(2)O and make a fair comparison between them. Additionally, the counterpoise method (CP) has(More)
