A series of the substituted two-electron acceptors with a dicyanomethylene-bridged acridophosphine scaffold has been prepared and compared with the nitrogen-containing counterpart using various spectroscopic, electrochemical and theoretical methods.

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 …
