a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t The latest release of NWChem delivers an open-source computational chemistry package with extensive capabilities for large scale simulations of chemical and biological systems. Utilizing a common computational framework, diverse theoretical descriptions can be used to provide the best solution for a given scientific(More)
Water is ubiquitous on our planet and plays an essential role in several key chemical and biological processes. Accurate models for water are crucial in understanding, controlling and predicting the physical and chemical properties of complex aqueous systems. Over the last few years we have been developing a molecular-level based approach for a macroscopic(More)
Aqueous complexation, adsorption, and redox chemistry of actinide species at mineral surfaces have a significant impact on their transport and reactive behavior in chemically and physically heterogeneous environments. The adsorption configurations and energies of microsolvated uranyl dication species, UO(2)(H(2)O)(n)(2+), were determined on fully(More)
A direct dynamics simulation at the B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) level of theory was used to study the F- + CH3OOH reaction dynamics. The simulations are in excellent agreement with a previous experimental study (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2002, 124, 3196). Two product channels, HF + CH2O + OH- and HF + CH3OO-, are observed. The former dominates and occurs via an ECO2(More)
Coupled-cluster theory with single and double excitations is applied to the calculation of optical properties of large polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Dipole polarizabilities are reported for benzene, pyrene, and the oligoacenes sequence n=2-6. Dynamic polarizabilities were calculated on polyacences as large as pentacene for a single frequency and for benzene(More)
The interface for VENUS and NWChem, and the resulting software package for direct dynamics simulations are described. The coupling of the two codes is considered to be a tight coupling since the two codes are compiled and linked together and act as one executablewith data being passed between the two codes through routine calls. The advantages of this type(More)
We report benchmark calculations obtained with our new coupled-cluster singles and doubles (CCSD) code for calculating the first- and second-order molecular properties. This code can be easily incorporated into combined [Valiev, M.; Kowalski, K. J. Chem. Phys. 2006, 125, 211101] classical molecular mechanics (MM) and ab initio coupled-cluster (CC)(More)
