In this study, we compare the electron densities for a set of hydrogen-bonded complexes obtained with either conventional Kohn-Sham density functional theory (DFT) calculations or with the frozen-density embedding (FDE) method, which is a subsystem approach to DFT. For a detailed analysis of the differences between these two methods, we compare the topology(More)
The photo tautomerisations of ortho-nitrotoluene (oNT) and its methylated derivative ortho-ethylnitrobenzene (oENB) have been studied by means of femtosecond spectroscopy and (TD)-DFT computations. In UV/Vis transient absorption spectroscopy a band peaking at 400 nm is seen to rise in a bi-modal manner with time constants of 1-10 ps and 1500 ps. Femtosecond(More)
Applications of quantum chemistry have evolved from single or a few calculations to more complicated workflows, in which a series of interrelated computational tasks is performed. In particular multiscale simulations, which combine different levels of accuracy, typically require a large number of individual calculations that depend on each other.(More)
The first intermediate of the photochemical transformation of ortho-nitrobenzaldehyde to ortho-nitrosobenzoic acid in acetonitrile solvent has been characterized by femtosecond spectroscopy and time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) calculations. Femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (FSRS) indicates that this intermediate adopts a ketene(More)
The ability to calculate accurate electron densities of full proteins or of selected sites in proteins is a prerequisite for a fully quantum-mechanical calculation of protein-protein and protein-ligand interaction energies. Quantum-chemical subsystem methods capable of treating proteins and other biomolecular systems provide a route to calculate the(More)
We present an intensity-driven approach for the selective calculation of vibrational modes in molecular resonance Raman spectra. The method exploits the ideas of the mode-tracking algorithm [M. Reiher and J. Neugebauer, J. Chem. Phys. 118, 1634 (2003)] for the calculation of preselected molecular vibrations and of Heller's gradient approximation [Heller et(More)
We present the software package M(O)V(I)P(AC) for calculations of vibrational spectra, namely infrared, Raman, and Raman Optical Activity (ROA) spectra, in a massively parallelized fashion. M(O)V(I)P(AC) unites the latest versions of the programs SNF and AKIRA alongside with a range of helpful add-ons to analyze and interpret the data obtained in the(More)
Recently we reported a combined QM/MM approach to estimate condensed-phase values of atomic polarizabilities for use in (bio)molecular simulation. The setup relies on a MM treatment of the solvent when determining atomic polarizabilities to describe the response of a QM described solute to its external electric field. In this work, we study the effect of(More)
