|Abstract:||We have investigated the effect of nitroxide radical-water hydrogen bonding (NO(center dot)center dot center dot center dot H(2)O) on the intramolecular magnetic exchange interaction (J) for biologically relevant aminoxyl diradicals. We adopt a combination of broken-symmetry density functional theory and the quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) approach. We find that the presence of hydrogen bonding reorients the radical spin density on -NO(center dot). This phenomenon reduces the effective distance between the two interacting localized spin centers that eventually increases the intramolecular magnetic exchange interaction. We have also investigated the functional variation of the magnetic exchange interaction, using various GGA (BLYP, PBE, HCTH407), meta-GGA (TPSS, VXSC), and hybrid (O3LYP, B3LYP, B3P86, B3PW91, and PBE0) functionals.|
