Alkyne-embedding [11]cycloparaphenylene ([11]CPPs) was functionalized with electron-donating, -neutral, and -withdrawing aryl substituents to yield a series of nanolassos via click chemistry. We used our state-of-the-art, artificial intelligence-enhanced quantum mechanical method 1 (AIQM1) to thoroughly analyze the electronic and photophysical properties of these …

We have developed artificial intelligence-enhanced quantum mechanical method 1 (AIQM1), which can be used out of the box for very fast quantum chemical calculations with the accuracy of the gold-standard coupled-cluster method. Read more »

OMx methods have once again been shown to give as accurate results as DFT methods, but substantially faster.  The OM2 method has outperformed other semi-empirical methods and has essentially the same accuracy as BLYP for the distribution coefficient part of …

In our recent study, we propose using machine learning (ML) to correct differences in properties calculated at two quantum chemical (QC) methods with different accuracy. In the Δ-ML approach ML model is trained on differences between some property calculated at …

We propose using machine learning (ML) for improving semiempirical Hamiltonian. Given sufficiently large training set ML can be used to correct parameters of semiempirical quantum chemical (SQC) method individually for any target molecule. Such automatic parametrization technique (APT) stands in …
