      A DFT study of the ground state multiplicities of linear vs angular polyheteroacenes 

      Constantinides, Christos P.; Koutentis, Panayiotis Andreas; Schatz, J. (2004)
      Unrestricted density functional calculations in combination with the broken-symmetry approach and spin-projection methods have been employed to study a series of formally 4n π antiaromatic linear and angular polyheteroacenes. ...

      Direct observation of ultrafast long-range charge separation at polymer-fullerene heterojunctions 

      Provencher, F.; Bérubé, N.; Parker, A. W.; Greetham, G. M.; Towrie, M.; Hellmann, C.; Côté, M.; Stingelin, N.; Silva, C.; Hayes, Sophia C. (2014)
      In polymeric semiconductors, charge carriers are polarons, which means that the excess charge deforms the molecular structure of the polymer chain that hosts it. This results in distinctive signatures in the vibrational ...

      Electronic structure of K 2Bi 8Se 13 

      Bilc, D. I.; Mahanti, S. D.; Kyratsi, Theodora; Chung, D. Y.; Kanatzidis, M. G.; Larson, P. (2005)
      K 2Bi 8Se 13 belongs to a class of complex chalcogenides that shows potential for superior thermoelectric performance. This compound forms in two distinct phases, α and β. The β phase, which has several sites with mixed ...

      A magnetostructural investigation of an abrupt spin transition for 1-phenyl-3-trifluoromethyl-1,4-dihydrobenzo[e][1,2,4]triazin-4-yl 

      Constantinides, Christos P.; Berezin, Andrey A.; Zissimou, Georgia A.; Manoli, Maria; Leitus, G. M.; Bendikov, M.; Probert, M. R.; Rawson, J. M.; Koutentis, Panayiotis Andreas (2014)
      1-Phenyl-3-trifluoromethyl-1,4-dihydrobenzo[e][1,2,4]triazin-4-yl is the first example of a hydrazyl radical that shows a reversible sharp spin transition fully completed within 5(1) K. The nominally first-order transition ...

      Photoselected electron transfer pathways in DNA photolyase 

      Prytkova, T. R.; Beratan, David N.; Skourtis, Spiros S. (2007)
      Cyclobutane dimer photolyases are proteins that bind to UV-damaged DNA containing cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer lesions. They repair these lesions by photo-induced electron transfer. The electron donor cofactor of a photolyase ...

      The protein effect in the structure of two ferryl-oxo intermediates at the same oxidation level in the heme copper binuclear center of cytochrome c oxidase 

      Pinakoulaki, Eftychia; Daskalakis, Vangelis; Ohta, T.; Richter, O. -M H.; Budiman, K.; Kitagawa, T.; Ludwig, B.; Varotsis, Constantinos (2013)
      Identification of the intermediates and determination of their structures in the reduction of dioxygen to water by cytochrome c oxidase (CcO) are particularly important to understanding both O2 activation and proton pumping ...
