Electronic Structure Studies of Six-Atom Gold Clusters
Electronic structures of hexagold phosphine-stabilized complex and related systems were calculated using density functional theory (DFT), Hartree-Fock (HF) and configuration interaction (CI) methods. The absorption spectra of gold clusters were simulated using the CI wave functions and energies. A larger energy was required for the removal of two electrons from a bare gold cluster as compared to a cluster with phosphine ligands.
