In: Chemistry – A European Journal, 2015, vol. 21, no. 9, p. 3716–3726

In this work we have analyzed in detail the magnetic anisotropy in a series of hydrotris(pyrazolyl)borate (Tp−) metal complexes, namely [VTpCl]+, [CrTpCl]+, [MnTpCl]+, [FeTpCl], [CoTpCl], and [NiTpCl], and their substituted methyl and tert-butyl analogues with the goal of observing the effect of the ligand field on the magnetic properties. In the [VTpCl]+, [CrTpCl]+, [CoTpCl], and [NiTpCl]...

General treatment of the multimode Jahn–Teller effect: study of fullerene cations

In: Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 2013, vol. 15, no. 4, p. 1252-1259

A general model for the analysis of the Adiabatic Potential Energy Surfaces (APES) of the molecules that are subject to the multimode Jahn–Teller effect is presented. The method utilizes the information obtained by DFT calculations on a distorted stationary point on the APES. The essence of the model is to express the distortion along a model minimal energy path called Intrinsic Distortion Path...
