- Low-energy structures of benzene clusters with a novel accurate potential surface
M. Bartolomei, F. Pirani and J.M.C. Marques
Article first published online: 30 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/jcc.24201
This paper reports a detailed global optimization study on benzene clusters modeled with a new potential energy surface, which has been fine-tuned on accurate ab initio data. The low-energy structures obtained in this computational work are compatible with the available experimental results.
- Isomerization and fragmentation pathways of 1,2-azaborine

Article first published online: 29 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/jcc.24189
Very recently, the isolation of 1,2-azaborine was achieved in a cryogenic matrix. The possible isomerization, ring opening, and fragmentation pathways of 1,2-azaborine are investigated computationally and compared with available experimental and theoretical results for the all-carbon system.
- Does enhanced oxygen activation always facilitate CO oxidation on gold clusters? (pages 2177–2187)

- Computational design of organometallic oligomers featuring 1,3-metal-carbon bonding and planar tetracoordinate carbon atoms

Organometallic complexes with the TiE2 (E=OH and SH) decoration on the edge of aromatic hydrocarbons have been computationally designed, which feature 1,3-metal-carbon (1,3-MC) bonding between titanium and planar tetracoordinate β-carbon. Condensation of these di-functional monomers by eliminating small molecules (H2O and H2S) produce chain-like oligomers. The HOMO-LUMO gaps of the oligomers decreases with growing oligomer chain, a trend that suggests possible semi-conductor properties for oligomers with longer chains.
