Criteria for aromaticity of mesoionic heterocycles
The quantum chemical calculations of the basic criteria for aromaticity (nucleus-independent chemical shift (NICS), aromatic stabilization energy (ASE), and parameters of harmonic oscillator model ofExpand
Bonding, reactivity and aromaticity in the light of the multicenter indices
Some representative chemical reactions and all-metal aromatic/antiaromatic compounds are studied ab initio in order to understand the efficacy of the multicenter indices in providing insights intoExpand
Electron delocalization and aromaticity in linear polyacenes: atoms in molecules multicenter delocalization index.
Values for SCI-AIM values for the linear polyacenes indicate decreasing aromaticity going from outer to inner rings in the polyacene series. Expand
How Aromaticity Affects the Chemical and Physicochemical Properties of Heterocycles: A Computational Approach
Our publications dealing with problems related to aromatic heterocycles are discussed with the appropriate references from the literature. The three main topics are theoretical calculations,Expand
On the aromatic stabilization energy of the 4N π electron pyrene
The aromatic stabilization energy (ASE) of pyrene, evaluated with both isodesmic equation and ab initio valence bond (VB) theory-based block localized wavefunction (BLW) methods, gives consistentExpand
Aromaticity appears to be among the most controversial concepts in modern chemistry. The present paper addresses current controversies in development and applications of the two main criteria ofExpand
Effect of substitution on the structures, properties, and aromaticity of 1-H-boratabenzene anion
Molecular geometries of 1-H-boratabenzene anion and mono-substituted derivatives were optimized at the B3LYP/6-31+G** level of theory. Energetic results showed that meta isomers have less stabilityExpand
Substituent Effect on the Aromaticity of Phosphazene
Important information about the possible reactions and other propeties of a molecule can be determined by the aromaticity. Therefore, measurement of aromaticity is very important. Although there areExpand
Arsacyclopentadienyl anions: Structure, properties and aromaticity
The electronic structure and properties of a series of Arsacyclopentadienyl anions have been investigated using hybrid density functional B3LYP theory. Basic measurements of aromatic character areExpand
All-metal aromaticity and antiaromaticity.
These new developments have shown that aromaticity and antiaromaticity in metal systems have frequently multiple nature, being o-aromatic/antiaromatic and n-Aromatic/Antiaromatic, which is not found in organic aromatic/antaromatic molecules. Expand
