A quantum chemical study of []pagodane and its related compounds

S. G. Semenov, A. G. Solovyeva

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


The PBE0/6-31G**quantum chemical method is used to determine the symmetry and equilibrium structural parameters of the molecules of []pagodane (C20H20, D 2h ), two dienes (C20H20, D 2h ), two diradicals (C 20H20, C ), and two dications (C 20H 20 2+, D 2h and C ). The energy of a highly symmetric dication with a rectangular cycle is lower by 36 kcal/mole than that of a low symmetric dication with a trapezoidal cycle. The polarization interaction with liquid methylene chloride causes its decrease by 147 kcal/mole.
