Since these changes are low-energy processes, we expect that the CD spectra include a lot of information of the chiral molecular systems. Therefore, by comparing the experimental CD spectra with the theoretical SAC-CI spectra calculated for various chemical situations, one can study various chemistries such as the nature of the weak interactions involved in chiral molecular systems and biology.
Based on these facts, we are developing a new molecular technology called ChiraSac, a term combining chirality and SAC-CI, to study chiral molecular systems and the chemistry involved thereof. We utilize highly reliable SAC-CI method together with many useful quantum chemical methods involved in Gaussian suite of programs. In this chapter, we review our ChiraSac studies carried out to clarify the chemistries of some chiral molecules and molecular systems: large dependences of the CD spectra on the conformations of several chiral molecules in solutions and the effects of the stacking interactions of the nuclear-acid bases in DNA and RNA on the shapes of their CD spectra.
The results of our several studies show that the ChiraSac is a useful tool for studying the detailed chemistry involved in chiral molecular and biological systems. We review the current state and future prospects of coupled cluster response theory for modeling chiroptical properties in both gas-phase and solvated systems. We first provide an overview of ground-state coupled cluster theory and the analytic derivative approach to computing time-independent properties, and then extend this to time-dependent perturbations.
In addition, we review successes of response theory in the prediction of gas-phase specific rotations and electronic circular dichroism spectra for small molecules and the physical requirements of a robust computational model of such properties.
We also discuss the many challenges of extending this reliability to solvated systems through several key examples for which theory and experiment diverge significantly. The calculation of molecular properties, both static and dynamic, is a central goal of theoretical chemical physics. Within response theory, time-dependent properties are obtained as functional derivatives of the quantum mechanical action functional.
We review how linear and nonlinear response properties may be derived from the action functional using exact electronic states, as well as within time-dependent density functional theory. Particular emphasis is given to recently discovered spurious poles in approximate nonlinear response functions.
The ab initio treatment of external field response in crystalline solids poses particular challenges, since the operator representing the external field must be reformulated so to be consistent with periodic boundary conditions. In this chapter, we review our recent work to formulate implementable working equations for polarizability and hyperpolarizabilities in solids, in the framework of a local gaussian basis set.
This includes the combination of electric field response with geometrical distorsion, i. In addition, we outline a pathway for including magnetic fields in a consistent way, and speculate on future possible developments. This chapter addresses the methodological and computational aspects related to the prediction of molecular second-order nonlinear optical properties, i. When possible, comparisons with experiment are made.
An overview over different embedding schemes for electronic-structure calculations is given, with the main focus on methods used for molecular systems. The in-principle exact subsystem DFT formalism is used as a reference point to classify the different approaches according to their components of the exact embedding potential. Special attention is paid to recently proposed ideas from the field of density-based embedding and density matrix reconstruction approaches.
Vibrational spectroscopies proved extremely useful to study a broad range of molecules, including their structures and interactions. Additional structural sensitivity is provided by polarized techniques measuring different absorption or scattering of left- and right circularly polarized light.
Interpretation of the spectra, however, is largely dependent on time-consuming quantum-chemical simulations limited by molecular size. To be able to handle at a reasonable precision large molecules, such as biologically relevant systems, we developed a simplified method of transfer of vibrational atomic properties from smaller fragments to the system of interest.
The method found many successful applications in the past, including spectra of proteins and nucleic acids, and appears useful also in connection with the multi-level computational techniques in the foreseeable future.

In this chapter, we discuss the theoretical whereabouts of the transfer method and its related computational algorithms and describe typical applications to large molecules. Similarities and dissimilarities compared to the practice employed for the electronic case will be noted. A second quantization multimode formalism will be outlined and used to formulate many-body wave functions for nuclear motion.
The vibrational self-consistent field VSCF method is introduced. Full vibrational configuration interaction FVCI is introduced as the reference, before primary attention is given to vibrational coupled cluster VCC theory. VCC theory is furthermore analysed from a tensor decomposition perspective and with a perspective to scaling with system size. In this review article, we introduce the two-component relativistic time-dependent density functional theory TDDFT with spin—orbit interactions to calculate linear response properties and excitation energies.
The approach is implemented in the NTChem program. Our implementation is based on a noncollinear exchange—correlation potential presented by Wang et al. DOI: Recommend this eBook to your Library.

Xinyuan Zhu Shanghai Jiao Tong University presented recent progress on the controlled preparation of functional hyperbranched polymers and their applications as functional materials in nanotechnology, biomedical research, and supramolecular chemistry. Talks ranged from the development of new chemistries and approaches for the labeling of biomolecules to applications of chemical tools for understanding and manipulating biological processes. After the main symposium, satellite meetings were organized on the following day to strengthen the discussion on three specific topics.
Three satellite meetings were hosted simultaneously by local research institutions in Shanghai, and the participants of the main symposium were divided into three groups according to their research directions to take part in one of those meetings. Additional researchers from these local institutions also presented their research results. Dahui Qu served as the local host. Xinyuan Zhu served as the local host.
These events provided additional opportunities for knowledge exchange and discussion with a much bigger group of local researchers, Ph.
In addition to the German chemists 19 , additional local researchers 20 attended the satellite meetings, who enriched the scientific program and enabled fruitful bilateral discussions. The participants continued to discuss and chat during these social events, which provided a casual atmosphere for promoting understanding and friendship between Chinese and German chemists.
