Lithium Bonding Interaction In H2Cy⋯Lif (Y=O,S) Complexes: A Theoretical Probe, Salai Cheettu Ammal, P. Venuvanalingam, S. Pal May 2015

Lithium Bonding Interaction In H2Cy⋯Lif (Y=O,S) Complexes: A Theoretical Probe, Salai Cheettu Ammal, P. Venuvanalingam, S. Pal

Salai C. Ammal

Ab initio calculations at 6-31++G(d,p) level have been done on H2CY⋯LiF (Y=O,S) complexes choosing ten possible orientations in each complex. The effect of correlation on complex binding energies has been studied via single point MP2 (full) calculations done on 6-31++G(d,p) geometry. Binding energies have been corrected for basis set superposition error. Frequency calculations confirm that H2CO⋯LiF and H2CS⋯LiF complexes have three and two stable forms, respectively. The most stable form in each complex has been found to have a strong lithium bonding interaction and a secondary hydrogen bondinginteraction. NBO ...

Nmr And Conductivity Studies Of The Mixed Glass Former Effect In Lithium Borophosphate Glasses, Michael Storek, Roland Böhmer, Steve W. Martin, Dirk Larink, Hellmut Eckert

Materials Science and Engineering Publications

Alkali ion charge transport has been studied in a series of mixed glass former lithium borophosphate glasses of composition 0.33Li2O + 0.67[xB2O3 + (1 – x)P2O5]. The entire concentration range, 0.0 ≤ x ≤ 1.0, from pure glassy Li2P4O11 to pure glassy Li2B4O7 has been examined while keeping the molar fraction of Li2O constant. Electrical conductivity measurements and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques such as spin relaxometry, line shape analysis, and stimulated-echo spectroscopy were used to examine the temperature ...


An Ab Initio Study Of Specific Solvent Effects On The Electronic Coupling Element In Electron Transfer Reactions, Thomas M. Henderson '98, Robert J. Cave Nov 1998

An Ab Initio Study Of Specific Solvent Effects On The Electronic Coupling Element In Electron Transfer Reactions, Thomas M. Henderson '98, Robert J. Cave

All HMC Faculty Publications and Research

Specific solvent effects on the electronic coupling element for electron transfer are examined using two model donor–acceptor systems (Zn2+ and Li2+) and several model “solvent” species (He, Ne, H2O, and NH3). The effects are evaluated relative to the given donor–acceptor pair without solvent present. The electronic coupling element (Hab) is found to depend strongly on the identity of the intervening solvent, with He atoms decreasing Hab, whereas H2O and NH3 significantly increase Hab. The distance dependence (essentially exponential decay) is weakly affected by a single intervening solvent atom–molecule. However, when the donor–acceptor distance increases in concert ...

A Theoretical Investigation Of The Geometries, Vibrational Frequencies, And Binding Energies Of Several Alkali Halide Dimers, Robert P. Dickey '93, David Maurice '91, Robert J. Cave, Richard J. Mawhorter Feb 1993

Results are presented from ab initio calculations on the symmetrical alkali halide dimers made up of Li, Na, K, F, and Cl. We examine the sensitivity of representative monomer and dimer geometries to the variation of the basis set with and without polarization and diffuse functions. The geometries are then compared with available experimental results. We have also calculated vibrational frequencies at the restricted Hartree–Fock level and examined the changes in geometry brought about by correlation using second‐order Møller–Plesset perturbation theory. It is found that Hartree–Fock theory in a modest basis set with diffuse and polarization ...
