Helicenes are inherently chiral polyaromatic molecules composed of all-ortho fused benzene rings possessing a spring-like structure. Here, using a combination of density functional theory and tight-binding calculations, it is demonstrated that controlling the length of the helicene molecule by mechanically stretching or compressing the molecular junction(More)
Correlated ab initio calculations on large systems, such as the popular MP2 (or RI-MP2) method, suffer from the intramolecular basis set superposition error (BSSE). This error is typically manifested in molecules with folded structures, characterized by intramolecular dispersion interactions. It can dramatically affect the energy differences between various(More)
