Example text

A variety of methods are used for these studies and we add here methods based on ab initio CS. The basic model is actually the same for all the methods in use: ab initio CS has the feature, not yet implemented in other methods, of using a detailed QM description of the solute properties, allowing a description of effects due to specificities of the solute charge distribution. The expression of the S t function contains the combination of three terms, two of which, E 0 and E , correspond to the differences of energy with respect to the ground state, computed in the vertical transition approximation using respectively the two-mode nonequilibrium and the equilibrium formulations.

The problem is well known to people undertaking chemical syntheses; the search for the most appropriate solvents is to a large extent related to such differential interactions. Even greater is the indirect evidence coming from reactions occurring in living organisms; the admirable machinery of biochemical reactions exploits the complex nature of the medium, which cannot be assimilated to bulk isotropic water, to enhance or to hinder reaction mechanisms using a variety of physical effects. Let us return to the examination of reaction mechanisms.

This is not a true physical concept, being related to an approximation in the mathematical machinery of formulation of the quantum mechanical problem, but the Born–Oppenheimer approximation on which the PES is based is remarkably accurate and stable and so we may accept the PES as a physical ingredient of the theory. The definition of the family of PESs for an isolated system is unequivocal. We shall consider here cases in which the attention may be limited to a single PES: that of the electronic ground state.
