  1. Theoretical insight of nitric oxide adsorption on neutral and charged Pdn (n = 1–5) clusters

    Pakiza Begum, Pranjal Gogoi, Bhupesh Kumar Mishra and Ramesh Chandra Deka

    Neutral, cationic, and anionic Pdn clusters (n=1–5) are valuable model systems for the metal surface in the theoretical study of adsorption of gases. Size and charge of the clusters are found to have strong influence on the adsorption configurations of NO. Adsorption occurs mostly at the low coordination sites, i.e. top sites, and induces changes in the geometric and electronic properties in both the adsorbate molecule and the cluster.

    The validities of centrifugal sudden approximations in chemical reaction dynamics

    Tianshu Chu, Dongyue Liang, Jinmei Xu and Shunle Dong

    Centrifugal sudden (CS) approximations simplify the calculation associated of the Coriolis coupling matrix, thus, substantially reduces the computational cost for chemical dynamics both adiabatically and nonadiabatically. The validity of these approximations in time-dependent wave packet studies of chemical reaction dynamics, including ion-molecule adiabatic reactions and neutral nonadiabatic reactions ranging from triatomic to tetra-atomic and polyatomic systems, is put to the test here.

  4. Pristine and BN doped graphyne derivatives for UV light protection

    Barnali Bhattacharya, Ngangbam Bedamani Singh and Utpal Sarkar

    Article first published online: 4 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/qua.24910

    A systematic tunability of optical response of carbon-based nanomaterials is required for their application in hybrid solar cell, electroluminescence cell, light emitting cell, and organic electronics. The replacement of C[BOND]C bond by isoelectronic B[BOND]N bond is able to tune the optical response of the graphyne family of materials from the infrared to the UV region depending on doping site. This tunability suggests that graphyne materials can have probable applications in optoelectronics.

    An overview of continuum models for nonequilibrium solvation: Popular theories and new challenge (pages 700–721)

    Solvent reorganization energy plays a key role in many nonequilibrium phenomena such as electron transfer and photoexcitation. The nonequilibrium solvation theory based on the constrained equilibrium principle is introduced and compared with more established approaches. In the case of Stokes shifts, comparison of the linear fittings by both the Lippert–Mataga equation and the presented theory show that the latter will produce a smaller cavity radius for the same dipole moment difference.
