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 electronic structure and magnetic interaction of the active site of pig purple acid phosphatase (PAP, uteroferrin) were investigated using pure DFT (UBLYP) and hybrid DFT methods (UB3LYP and UB2LYP). Uteroferrin catalyzes the hydrolysis of a phosphate ester under acidic conditions and contains a binuclear iron center. The mammalian PAPs are expected to be targets for drug design of osteoporosis. Their active sites are typical examples of the Fe(II)-Fe(III) mixed-valence system. We studied double exchange interaction of the mixed-valence system, using the potential energy difference between the Fe(II)-Fe(III) and the Fe(III)-Fe(II) states. The pathway of the antiferromagnetic coupling between Fe(III) and Fe(II) were also discussed by using chemical indices, which are evaluated by the occupation numbers of singly occupied natural orbitals. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    ABSTRACT: Our theoretical efforts towards molecule-based magnetic conductors and superconductors on the basis of ab initio Hamiltonians and effective model Hamiltonians are summarized in relation to recently developed DNA-based molecular materials. Guanine and adenine derivatives coupling with organic radicals (R) are investigated as possible π–R components. In order to elucidate electronic and magnetic properties of these species, effective exchange integrals (Jab) for magnetic clusters are calculated by ab initio hybrid density functional methods. Theoretical possibilities of organic magnetic conductors and the organic solenoid are elucidated on the basis of these models in self-assembled DNA wires, sheets and related materials. Implications of the calculated results are finally discussed in order to obtain a unified picture of many p–d, π–d and π–R molecule-based systems with strong electron correlations.
