QUANTUM CHEMICAL STUDY ON THE ACTINIDE HYDRATES: THE SOLVENT EFFECTS
MetadataShow full item record
Publisher:Ohio State University
Ab initio calculations have been performed to study the structures of the thorium(IV) hydrates, thorium(IV) hydroxide complexes, and curium(III) hydrates in vacuo and in aqueous solution at different levels of theory. The conductor-like polarizable continuum model (CPCM) has been used to conduct geometry optimization computations in aqueous solution. The calculated results demonstrate that the molecular geometries obtained in the solvent generally are consistent with the experiments.
