Perić, Marko ; Andjelković, Ljubica ; Zlatar, Matija ; Nikolić, Aleksandar S. ; Daul, Claude ; Gruden-Pavlović, Maja

In: Monatshefte für Chemie - Chemical Monthly, 2013, vol. 144, no. 6, p. 817–823

Density functional theory was applied to compute the nucleus-independent chemical shifts of fullerene (C₆₀), the fullerene ion C₆₀ ¹⁰⁺, and the Jahn–Teller active fullerene anion C₆₀ ⁻ and cation C₆₀ ⁺. Positioning a ³He nucleus inside the cage of each of these fullerene species facilitates investigations of the substantial differences among them, ³He NMR chemical...

The choice of the exchange-correlation functional for the determination of the jahn–teller parameters by the density functional theory

Andjelković, Ljubica ; Gruden-Pavlović, Maja ; Daul, Claude ; Zlatar, Matija

In: International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, 2012, p. -

The Jahn–Teller (JT) parameters for small, aromatic, organic radicals, CnHn (n = 4–7), bis(cyclopentadienyl)cobalt(II) (cobaltocene), a sodium cluster (Na3), a silver cluster (Ag3), the hexaflurocuprate(II) ion ([CuF6]4−), and tris(acetylacetonato)manganese(III) ([Mn(acac)3]) have been evaluated by the means of the multideterminantal density functional theory using the most common...

Magnetic criteria of aromaticity in a benzene cation and anion: how does the Jahn–Teller effect influence the aromaticity?

Andjelković, Ljubica ; Perić, Marko ; Zlatar, Matija ; Grubišić, Sonja ; Gruden-Pavlović, Maja

In: Tetrahedron Letters, 2011, vol. 53, no. 7, p. 794-799

The aromatic/antiaromatic behavior of the Jahn–Teller (JT) active benzene cation and anion has been investigated using Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations of Nuclear Independent Chemical Shifts (NICS) and magnetic susceptibility. NICS parameters have been scanned along the Intrinsic Distortion Path (IDP) for the benzene cation showing antiaromaticity which decreases with increasing...
