The reaction energies for 34 typical organic isomerizations including oxygen and nitrogen heteroatoms are investigated with modern quantum chemical methods that have the perspective of also being applicable to large systems. The experimental reaction enthalpies are corrected for vibrational and thermal effects, and the thus derived "experimental" reaction(More)
The performance of range-separated functionals for the calculation of reaction profiles of organometallic compounds is considered. Sets of high-level computational results are used as reference data for the most part. The benchmark data include a number of reactions involving small molecules reacting with the Pd atom, PdCl(-), PdCl2, and a Ni atom, the(More)
The complexes [Fe(tbta)2](BF4)2·2EtOH (1), [Fe(tbta)2](BF4)2·2CH3CN (2), [Fe(tbta)2](BF4)2·2CHCl3 (3), and [Fe(tbta)2](BF4)2 (4) were synthesized from the respective metal salts and the click-derived tripodal ligand tris[(1-benzyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)methyl]amine (tbta). Structural characterization of these complexes (at 100 or 133 K) revealed Fe-N bond(More)
Direct C-H phenylation of 2-ethylthiophene and 2-chlorothiophene with PhPdI(bipy) complex to form either the corresponding 4-phenyl or 5-phenylthiophene derivative is studied under stoichiometric conditions using various Lewis acids as additives. It is shown that reactions occur via the corresponding cationic Pd complex (PhPdbipy(+)) and that the(More)
The Hartree-Fock method, two common density functionals (PBE and B3LYP), and two new functionals (B97-D and B2PLYP) together with very large AO basis sets are used to compute the isomerization energies for substituted (R [Formula: see text] H, F, Cl) branched to linear alkanes and silanes. The results of accurate SCS-MP2 computations are taken as reference.(More)
A benchmark set of 25 rotational constants measured in the gas phase for nine molecules (termed ROT25) was compiled from available experimental data. The medium-sized molecules with 18-35 atoms cover common (bio)organic structure motifs including hydrogen bonding and flexible side chains. They were each considered in a single conformation. The experimental(More)
The performance of 23 density functionals, including one LDA, four GGAs, three meta-GGAs, three hybrid GGAs, eight hybrid meta-GGAs, and ten double-hybrid functionals, was investigated for the computation of activation energies of various covalent main-group single bonds by four catalysts: Pd, PdCl(-), PdCl2, and Ni (all in the singlet state). A reactant(More)
A review on numerical simulations of galaxy formation is given. Diierent numerical methods to solve collisionless and gas dynamical systems are outlined and one particular simulation technique, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics is discussed in some detail. After a short discussion of the most relevant physical processes which aaect the dynamics of the gas,(More)
We have implemented the nuclear gradient for several range-separated hybrid density functionals in the general quantum chemistry code ORCA. To benchmark the performance, we have used a recently published set of back-corrected gas phase rotational constants, which we extended by three molecules. In our evaluation, CAM-B3LYP-D3 and ωB97X-D3 show great(More)
