Computational thermochemistry of oxatriquinane and its analogues

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The standard gas phase enthalpies of formation, electron affinities, first ionization energies and partial atomic charges for oxatriquinane and some of its isoelectronic tricyclic analogues have been calculated using high-level, ab initio methods: G4, OVGF and CCSD. G4 method has been used to obtain thermochemical data, while OVGF and CCSD methods were used to calculate vertical ionization energies and electron affinities. We suggest that several unknown oxatriquinane analogues are synthetically accessible and of comparable thermodynamic stability to those synthesized recently and have predicted some of their properties.
