In a previous study (Chemical Physics Letters 2005, 401 , 385) we computed the optical rotatory dispersion of (S)-propylene oxide in gas phase and solution using the hierarchy of coupled cluster models CCS, CC2, CCSD, and CC3. Even for the highly correlated CC3 model combined with a flexible basis set, the theoretical gas-phase specific rotation at 355 nm(More)
The polarizability and second hyperpolarizability of polyacetylene oligomer chains of increasing size up to C(24)H(26) were investigated by means of the Coulomb-attenuating method (CAM-B3LYP) using response theory. It was found that this long-range corrected density functional removes to large parts the overestimation observed for standard methods and in(More)
A combined quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) method is described, where the polarization between the solvent and solute is accounted for using a self-consistent scheme linear in the solvent polarization. The QM/MM method is implemented for calculation of energies and molecular response properties including the calculation of linear and quadratic(More)
Singlet molecular oxygen (a(1)Delta(g)) has been produced and optically detected in time-resolved experiments upon nonlinear two-photon excitation of a photosensitizer dissolved in water. For a given sensitizer, specific functional groups that impart water solubility and that give rise to larger two-photon absorption cross sections are, in many cases, not(More)
A classical interaction model for the calculation of molecular polarizabilities has been investigated. The model is described by atomic capacitancies, polarizabilities, and a parameter related to the size of the atom, where one set of parameters has been employed for each element. The model has been parameterized for the elements H, C, N, O, F, and Cl from(More)
The (15)N NMR spectrum of adenine in aqueous solution has been modeled using high-level combined density functional theory/molecular mechanics techniques coupled to a dynamical averaging scheme. The explicit consideration of the three lowest-energy tautomers of adenine-H9, H7 and H3-allows for a well-founded comparison to experimental data. Based on a very(More)
Infrared and Raman spectra of three drug molecules, aspirin, caffeine and ibuprofen, in gas phase and in aqueous solution have been simulated using hybrid density functional theory. The long range solvent effect is modelled by the polarizable continuum model, while the short range hydrogen bonding effects are taken care of by the super-molecular approach(More)
Observed first in Wilson's pioneering experiments in the cloud chamber, the sign preference has remained a mystery for more than a century. We investigate the sign preference using a quantum approach and show that this puzzling phenomenon is essentially quantum in nature. It is shown that the effect of the chemical identity of the core ion is controlled by(More)
We present a study of the blueshift of the n-->pi* electronic transition in formaldehyde in aqueous solution using a combined coupled cluster/molecular mechanics model including mutual polarization effects in the Hamiltonian. In addition, we report ground and excited state dipole moments. Configurations are generated from molecular dynamics simulations with(More)
