A quantum gate: A system of two coupled electron spins that is useful for simple quantum computing operations has been prepared by synthesis of a biradical 1 and co-crystallization with an isomorphous host molecule. The two weakly exchange-coupled quantum bits (target qubit blue and control qubit red) span four electron spin states. The electron spin(More)
The CASSCF and the hybrid CASSCF-MRMP2 methods are applied to the calculations of spin-spin and spin-orbit contributions to the zero-field splitting tensors (D tensors) of the halogen-substituted spin-septet 2,4,6-trinitrenopyridines, focusing on the heavy atom effects on the spin-orbit term of the D tensors (D(SO) tensors). The calculations reproduced(More)
Zero-field splitting (ZFS) tensors (D tensors) of organic high-spin oligonitrenes/oligocarbenes up to spin-septet are quantitatively determined on the basis of quantum chemical calculations. The spin-orbit contributions, D(SO) tensors are calculated in terms of a hybrid CASSCF/MRMP2 approach, which was recently proposed by us. The spin-spin counterparts,(More)
Weakly exchange-coupled biradicals have attracted much attention in terms of their DNP application in NMR spectroscopy for biological systems or the use of synthetic electron-spin qubits. Pulse-ESR based electron spin nutation (ESN) spectroscopy applied to biradicals is generally treated as transition moment spectroscopy from the theoretical side,(More)
In high-spin chemistry, random-orientation fine-structure (FS) electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy entertains advantages as the most facile and convenient method to identify high-spin systems, as frequently reported in the literature. Random-orientation ESR spectroscopy applicable to organic high-spin entities can date back to the Wasserman and(More)
A quasi-restricted orbital (QRO) approach for the calculation of the spin-orbit term of zero-field splitting tensors (DSO tensors) by means of density functional theory (DFT) importantly features in the fact that it is free from spin contamination problems because it uses spin eigenfunctions for the zeroth order wave functions. In 2011, however, Schmitt and(More)
Sulfurization of five-coordinate [W(IV)O(1,2-benzenedithiolate)(2)](2-) proceeds under very mild conditions to form seven-coordinate [W(VI)O(eta(2)-S(2))(1,2-benzenedithiolate)(2)](2-), from which H(2)S was generated by treatment with H(2). This is the first functional model for the fourth tungsten-containing WOR4 enzyme. Kinetics and isotope-scrambling(More)
