- Toward more efficient density-based adaptive QM/MM methods
Min Zheng, Jissy A. Kuriappan and Mark P. Waller
Version of Record online: 9 DEC 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.25336
An efficient density-based adaptive quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical scheme in a single-step using a Voronoi partitioning scheme is presented. An adaptive search region lowers the computational time by reducing the size of the system included for interaction analysis. An adaptive QM core enables the system to adapt to the formation/breaking of both strong and weak interactions.
- On the applicability of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) and semiempirical methods to the computation of excited-state potential energy surfaces of perylene-based dye-aggregates
Christof Walter, Veronika Krämer and Bernd Engels

Excited states of dye aggregates are of vital importance for organic electronics. However, the computation of the excited states that arise from the intermolecular interaction is not trivial. Using perylene-based dimers as a model, it is demonstrated that the longitudinal displacement in which are usually considered to be of minor importance, can become vital for qualitatively correct calculations of the potential energy surface.
- Rovibrational spectra of bounded diatomic molecules
Sonia Lumb, Shalini Lumb and Vinod Prasad
Version of Record online: 5 DEC 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.25339
Boundary alters the rovibrational spectrum and hence the number of bound states of a molecule. The energy spectra, radial dipole matrix elements, static polarizability, and Stark shift have been studied as a function of boundary parameter. This study provides an insight into the behavior of trapped molecules, for example, in zeolites or fullerenes and hence can be useful in analyzing actual molecules under analogous situations.
- An insight into CH···N hydrogen bond and stability of the complexes formed by trihalomethanes with ammonia and its monohalogenated derivatives
Nguyen Thi Hong Man, Pham Le Nhan, Vien Vo, Duong Tuan Quang and Nguyen Tien Trung
Version of Record online: 30 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.25338
To elucidate the origin of the CH···N hydrogen bond, the interactions of CHX3 ((X = F, Cl, Br) with ammonia and its monohalogenated derivatives, NH2Y (Y = F, Cl, Br), are investigated by means of first-principles calculations. The hydrogen bond strength can be classified in terms of the proton affinity of the N site of NH2Y and the deprotonation enthalpyof the CH bond in the isolated trihalomethane monomers.
- Structures, stabilities, and electronic properties of fullerene C36 with endohedral atomic Sc, Y, and La: A dispersion-corrected DFT study
Alan Miralrio and Luis Enrique Sansores
Version of Record online: 27 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.25335
The M@C36 (M = Sc, Y, and La) are part of a family of experimentally obtained endohedral metallofullerenes. For the first time, these compounds are studied theoretically. Results were obtained at the dispersion-corrected DFT level PBE-D3(BJ)/def2-TZVP. Binding energies explain the abundances obtained experimentally. Their small HOMO-LUMO gaps denote high reactivity. The bond between Y and Sc with the cage is mostly covalent and ionic in the case of La. Their stabilities are not increased by aromaticity.
