Methodology to calculate electronic chiroptical properties from time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is outlined. Applications of TDDFT to computations of electronic circular dichroism, optical rotation, and optical rotatory dispersion are reviewed. Emphasis is put on publications from 2005 to 2010, but much of the older literature is also cited(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the relationship between socioeconomic status (SES) and late stage breast cancer using the cluster detection software SaTScan and U.S. census-derived area-based socioeconomic measures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Florida's 18,683 women diagnosed with late stage breast cancer (regional or distant stage) between 1998 and 2002 as identified by(More)
The synthesis of phosphole-modified aza[6]helicenes and the complexation of these pi-conjugated ditopic ligands with metallic ions are described. The chiroptical properties of these metal-bis(helicene) assemblies were experimentally evaluated and studied by first-principles theoretical calculations. The results show that the metal impacts the chiroptical(More)
Hetero- and homochiral diastereomeric bis(metallahelicene)s have been synthesized. They possess a rare Pt(III)-Pt(III) scaffold bridged by benzoato ligands. It is shown that heterochiral (P,M)-bis(Pt(III)-[6]helicene) can isomerize into the homochiral (P,P)- and (M,M)-bis(Pt(III)-[6]helicene). A theoretical study shows a unique σ-π conjugation between the(More)
Acetylacetonato-platina[6]- and -platina[7]helicenes have been prepared from 2-pyridyl-substituted benzophenanthrene ligands by following a two-step cycloplatination reaction. The photophysical properties (UV-visible absorption and emission behavior) and chiroptical properties (circular dichroism and molar rotation) of the resolved enantiomers have been(More)
The optical rotatory dispersion (ORD, both non-resonant and resonant) and the electronic circular dichroism (CD) of tris-bidentate transition metal complexes of the form [M(L)(3)](n+) (M = Fe, Ru, Os, Co, Rh, Ir; n = 2, 3; L = 1,10-phenanthroline, 2,2'-bipyridine) are calculated using time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). The exciton CD band(More)
Aza[n]helicene phosphole derivatives have been prepared from aza[n]helicene diynes by the Fagan-Nugent route. Their photophysical properties (UV/Vis absorption and emission behavior) have been evaluated. Their behavior as P,N chelates towards coordination to Pd(II) and Cu(I) has been investigated: metal-bis(aza[n]helicene phosphole) assemblies are formed by(More)
A number of density functionals, including 'pure' (nonhybrid) functionals, global hybrids, and range-separated hybrids, were used to calculate the electronic circular dichroism (CD) spectra of 10 tris-bidentate transition metal complexes. The results are compared to one another and to experimental CD spectra, in an effort to illustrate the shortcomings of(More)
