We have tested the reference interaction site model (RISM) for the case of the hypernetted chain (HNC) and the partially linearized hypernetted chain (PLHNC) closures improved by a repulsive bridge correction (RBC) for ionic hydrated species. We have analyzed the efficiency of the RISM/HNC+RBC and RISM/PLHNC+RBC techniques for decomposition of the(More)
Oxovitisin is a natural antioxidant present in aged wine and comes from the chemical transformation undergone by anthocyanins and pyranoanthocyanins. Its antioxidant radical scavenging capacity was theoretically explored by density functional theory (DFT)/B3LYP methods. The O-H bond dissociation energy (BDE), the ionization potential (IP), the proton(More)
The conformational structure and electronic spectra properties of a series of bay substituted perylenediimides (PDI) derivatives have been investigated by means of density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT. The B3LYP and PBE0 hybrid exchange-correlation functionals were applied in conjunction with the double-ζ quality SVP basis set. These(More)
Effective nuclear charges of the main group elements from the second up to the fifth row have been developed for the one-electron part of the spin-orbit (SO) coupling Hamiltonian. These parameters, suitable to be used for SO calculations of large molecular systems, provide a useful and remarkably good approximation to the full SO Hamiltonian. We have(More)
We present a noniterative method to calculate spin-orbit coupling by means of a theoretical approach that provides the use of the full Breit-Pauli operator. This method was applied to compute one and two-electron spin-orbit coupling contributions between singlet and triplet, and doublet and doublet states, respectively. These states have been represented by(More)
Optimized contracted Gaussian basis sets of double-zeta valence polarized (DZVP) quality for first-row transition metals are presented. The DZVP functions were optimized using the PWP86 generalized gradient approximation (GGA) functional and the B3LYP hybrid functional. For a careful analysis of the basis sets performance the transition metal atoms and(More)
