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)
Reactions involved in the autoxidation of ascorbate have been investigated with quantum chemical first-principles and ab initio methods. Reaction energies and Gibbs energies of the reactions were calculated at the density functional theory level applying the gradient-corrected BP86 and the hybrid B3LYP functionals together with def2-TZVP basis sets. Results(More)
A detailed theoretical study of the mechanism and energetics of an organocatalysis based on C=N activation by halogen-bonding is presented for the hydrocyanation of N-benzylidenemethylamine. The calculations at the level of scalar-relativistic gradient-corrected density functional theory give an insight in this catalytic concept and provide information on(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)
