The structure and properties of the possible multiferroic, BiMnO₃, are calculated using the LDA+U method of density functional theory. The symmetry is found to be centrosymmetric C2/c with zero ferroelectric polarization. The stereochemically active Bi lone pairs form local dipole moments which order in an anti-polar arrangement.
