We investigate the effect of including a dynamic reaction field at the lowest possible ab inito wave function level of theory, namely the Hartree-Fock (HF) self-consistent field level within the polarizable embedding (PE) formalism. We formulate HF based PE within the linear response theory picture leading to the PE-random-phase approximation (PE-RPA) and(More)
In this study, we have applied two different spanning protocols for obtaining the molecular conformations of L-tryptophan in aqueous solution, namely a molecular dynamics simulation and a molecular mechanics conformational search with subsequent geometry re-optimization of the stable conformers using a quantum mechanically based method. These spanning(More)
The ability of molecules to change colour on account of changes in solvent polarity is known as solvatochromism and used spectroscopically to characterize charge-transfer transitions in donor-acceptor molecules. Here we report that donor-acceptor-substituted molecular wires also exhibit distinct properties in single-molecule electronics under the influence(More)
The performance of the Hartree-Fock method and the three density functionals B3LYP, PBE0, and CAM-B3LYP is compared to results based on the coupled cluster singles and doubles model in predictions of the solvatochromic effects on the vertical n-->pi* and pi-->pi* electronic excitation energies of acrolein. All electronic structure methods employed the same(More)
The microscopic electric polarization in terms of the dipole-dipole polarizability and its second hyperpolarizability of aligned films and ropes of carbon nanotubes has been studied theoretically by a point-dipole interaction model. The results show clearly the influence of intertube interactions on the microscopic polarization demonstrating the sensitivity(More)
