Complexes formed by anions and substituted molecular bowls were studied by means of computational methods. The bowls consisted of corannulene molecules substituted with five or ten F, Cl, or CN groups, whereas Cl(-), Br(-) and BF(4)(-) were the anions considered. Substitution with F, Cl and CN hardly affects the geometry of the bowl, but produces an(More)
Complexes formed by substituted buckybowls derived from corannulene and sumanene with sodium cation or chloride anion have been computationally studied by using a variety of methods. Best results have been obtained with the SCS-MP2 method extrapolated to basis set limit, which reproduces the highest-level values obtained with the MP2.X method. All bowls(More)
Complexes formed by guanidinium cation and a pair of aromatic molecules among benzene, phenol, or indole have been computationally studied to determine the characteristics of the cation···π interaction in ternary systems modeling amino acid side chains. Guanidinium coordinates to the aromatic units preferentially in the following order: indole, phenol, and(More)
