The authors present scalar-relativistic energy-consistent Hartree-Fock pseudopotentials for the main-group elements. The pseudopotentials do not exhibit a singularity at the nucleus and are therefore suitable for quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculations. They demonstrate their transferability through extensive benchmark calculations of atomic excitation(More)
The direct adjustment of two-component pseudopotentials (scalar-relativistic + spin-orbit potentials), to atomic total energy valence spectra derived from four-component multiconfiguration Dirac-Hartree-Fock all-electron calculations based on the Dirac-Coulomb-Breit Hamiltonian, has been made a routine tool for an efficient treatment of heavy main-group(More)
We extend our recently published set of energy-consistent scalar-relativistic Hartree-Fock pseudopotentials by the 3d-transition metal elements, scandium through zinc. The pseudopotentials do not exhibit a singularity at the nucleus and are therefore suitable for quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculations. The pseudopotentials and the accompanying basis sets(More)

Scalar-relativistic pseudopotentials and corresponding spin-orbit potentials of the energy-consistent variety have been adjusted for the simulation of the [Ar]3d(10) cores of the 4d transition metal elements Y-Pd. These potentials have been determined in a one-step procedure using numerical two-component calculations so as to reproduce atomic valence(More)
New relativistic energy-consistent pseudopotentials have been generated for the 5d transition metals Hf-Pt. The adjustment was done in numerical two-component multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock calculations, using atomic valence-energy spectra from four-component multiconfiguration Dirac-Hartree-Fock calculations as reference data. The resulting two-component(More)
The mechanism of titanocene mediated 3-exo cyclizations was investigated by a combined theoretical and experimental study. A gradient corrected density functional theory (DFT) method has been scaled against titanocene dichloride, the parent butenyl radical, and in bond dissociation energy (BDE) calculations. The BP86 method using density fitting, and a(More)
A method for the preparation of a variety of cyclobutanes via 4-exo cyclization of radicals is presented. Radical generation is carried out by electron transfer from titanocene(III) chlorides to epoxides. The reaction relies on the acceleration of the cyclization through the use of alpha,beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds as radical traps and the(More)
