We present a first-principles investigation of the structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of pyrolusite (β-MnO2) using conventional and extended Hubbard-corrected density-functional theory (DFT+U and DFT+U+V ). The onsite U and intersite V Hubbard parameters are computed using linear-response theory in the framework of density-functional perturbation theory. We show that while the inclusion of the onsite U is crucial to describe the localized nature of the Mn(3d) states, the intersite…

Proper description of both geometry and energetics for these molecules is recovered through either calculating DFT+U relaxations at fixed M-O bond lengths or by inclusion of an intersite interaction term V that favors M(3d)-O(2p) interactions.

The adiabatic energy differences of six Fe(II) molecular complexes computed using this DFT+U approach, named PBE[U] here, are in excellent agreement with coupled cluster-corrected CASPT2 values for both weak- and strong-field ligands resulting in a mean absolute error of 0.44 eV.

This work implemented the popular Hubbard density-functional theory + U (DFT+U) method in its spherically averaged form in the all-electron, full-potential DFT code FHI-aims, and finds that multiple localized radial basis functions of the same angular momentum can lead to highly erroneous predictions of ground-state properties.
