ABSTRACT The unrestricted Hartree–Fock (UHF) and hybrid-density functional theory (DFT) calculations have been carried out for the metal oxides such as copper oxides and nickel oxides. In order to elucidate magnetic properties of the species, the effective exchange integrals (Jab) have been obtained by the total energy difference between the highest and lowest spin states in several computational schemes with and without spin projection. The mixing ratios of the exchange correlation functionals in the hybrid DFT method have been reoptimized so as to reproduce the Jab values for strongly correlated oxides. The natural orbital analysis has also been performed for elucidation of symmetry and occupation numbers of the magnetic orbitals. From these calculated results, we discuss characteristics of the magnetic interactions for metal oxides in the strong correlation regime.

    ABSTRACT: The unrestricted Hartree-Fock (UHF) and hybrid density functional theory (HDFT) calculations have been carried out for manganese oxides. In order to elucidate magnetic properties of the species, the effective exchange integrals ( J ab ) have been obtained by the total energy difference between the highest and lowest spin states. The natural orbital analysis has also been performed for elucidation of symmetry and occupation numbers of the magnetic orbitals.

    ABSTRACT: Electronic states of copper oxides were investigated after hole-doping by using Hybrid-DFT (UB2LYP) calculations for three types of model clusters. Energy diagram in hole-doped state is explained by using d-p interaction between 3d x 2 m y 2 orbital of copper and 2p orbital of oxygen and superexchange interaction (SE) between copper orbitals via closed oxygen orbital.

    ABSTRACT: The phenalenyl radical (1) is a prototype of the hydrocarbon radical. Recently, the single crystal of 2,5,8-tri-tert-butylphenalenyl (2) was isolated and showed that the two phenalenyl radicals form a staggered dimeric pair, giving rise to strong antiferromagnetic interactions. The origin of the antiferromagnetic interactions and the nature of the chemical bond for the dimeric pair are challenging issues for chemists. First, spin-polarized hybrid DFT (Becke's half and half LYP (UB2LYP)) and CASSCF calculations were performed for 2 and its simplified model, the staggered-stacking phenalenyl radical dimeric pair (3a), to elucidate the origin of the strong antiferromagnetic coupling and the characteristics of the chemical bond. The calculated results showed that a SOMO-SOMO overlap effect was responsible for the strong antiferromagnetic interactions and weak or intermediate covalent bonding between phenalenyl radicals. The tert-butyl groups introduced at three beta-positions hardly affected the magnetic coupling, mainly causing steric hindrances in the crystalline state. Next, to obtain insight into ferromagnetic stacking, we investigated the stacking effect of staggered (3a)- and eclipsed (3b)-stacking phenalenyl radical dimeric pairs with a change of the SOMO-SOMO overlap on the basis of the extended McConnell model. We found that the stacking mode of the dimeric pair with both a small SOMO-SOMO overlap and a ferromagnetic spin polarization effect provided a ferromagnetic coupling.
