Article first published online: 29 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.24975
The quantum-classical path integral formulation allows a consistent dynamical treatment of quantum (electron, proton or molecular) and classical (solvent) degrees of freedom. The classical mechanism of decoherence, whereby the phase of the quantum particle is altered by the trajectory of the solvent in the classical path approximation, is exploited to facilitate convergence.
- Structural, nonlinear optical, and vibration properties of the C40H10 buckybowl modified with nitrogen atoms
Weiqi Li, Xin Zhou, Qiang Wang, Zhuang Xiong and Wei Quan Tian
Article first published online: 29 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.24976
Nitrogen doping is very effective in stabilizing the curved carbon structures and tuning the electronic and nonlinear optical property of buckybowls. The possibility to tune chemical and physical properties of buckybowl compounds by introducing heteroatoms in carbon bowl is expected to open up a new door for the design of novel optical and electronic materials.

Elena N. Golubeva, Oleg I. Gromov, Georgy M. Zhidomirov and Ekaterina M. Zubanova
Article first published online: 29 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.24982
Application of DFT techniques to estimate structures and properties of organocuprates(II) and (III) intermediates of catalytic and photochemical reactions is reviewed. Reasonable agreement of calculated EPR parameters and UV-Vis spectra of organocuprates with experiment allowed not only to determine the composition and geometry of such complexes but also to discuss their electronic properties.
- Photomagnetic and nonlinear optical properties in cis-trans green fluoroprotein chromophore coupled Bis-imino nitroxide diradicals
Debojit Bhattacharya, Suranjan Shil, Anirban Misra, Laimutis Bytautas and Douglas J. Klein
Article first published online: 22 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.24981
Density Functional Theory calculations are benchmarked for their ability to provide new insights in the photomagnetic and nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of three bis-imino nitroxide-based green fluorescent protein chromophore coupled diradicals. Calculations reveal new significant features exhibited by their cis and trans conformers. Changes in exchange magnetic coupling constants during trans to cis conversion are related to aromaticity indices, and NLO response properties in these diradical systems reveal unusually large static first hyperpolarizabilities.
