Selective glycosylation of the C-6 fluorinated galactofuranosyl acceptor 2 was studied with four galactofuranosyl donors. It was highlighted that this electron-withdrawing atom strongly impacted the behavior of the acceptor, thus leading to unprecedented glycosylation pathways. Competition between expected glycosylation of 2, ring expansion of this acceptor and furanosylation, and intermolecular aglycon transfer was observed. Further investigation of the fluorinated synthetic compounds showed that the presence of fluorine atom contributed to increase the inhibition of the growth of Leishmania tarentolae, a non-pathogenic strain of Leishmania.

The electronic structure of the spherical Mackay icosahedral nanosized cluster Pd55 (PiPr3 )12 (µ3 -CO)20 is analyzed by using DFT calculations. Results reveal that it can be considered as a regular superatom with a "magic" electron count of 20, characterized by a 1S2 1P6 1D10 2S2 jellium configuration. Its open shell nature is associated with partial occupation of non-jellium, 4d-type, levels located on the interior of the Pd55 kernel. This shows that the superatom model can be used to rationalize the bonding and stability of spherical ligated group 10 clusters, despite their apparent 0-electron count.

The design of a coordination complex that involves a ligand combining both a tetrathiafulvalene core and a helicene fragment was achieved thanks to the reaction between the new 2-{1-[2-methyl[6]helicene]-4,5-[4,5-bis(propylthio)tetrathiafulvalenyl]-1 H-benzimidazol-2-yl}pyridine ligand (L) and the Dy(hfac)3·2H2O metalloprecursor. Magnetic investigations showed field-induced single-molecule-magnet (SMM) behavior under an applied magnetic field of 1000 Oe for [Dy(hfac)3(L)]·0.5CH2Cl2, while experimentally oriented single-crystal magnetic measurements allowed for determination of the magnetic anisotropy orientation. The magnetic behavior was rationalized through ab initio CASSCF/SI-SO calculations. This redox-active chiral-field-induced SMM paves the way for the design of switchable-multiproperty SMMs.

The paramagnetic cluster [Cu43 Al12 ](Cp*)12 was obtained from the reaction of [CuMes]5 and [AlCp*]4 (Cp*=η5 -C5 Me5 ; Mes=mesityl). This all-hydrocarbon ligand-stabilized M55 magic atom-number cluster features a Mackay-type nested icosahedral structure. Its open-shell 67-electron superatom configuration is unique. Three unpaired electrons occupy weakly antibonding jellium states. The situation prefigures the formation of a conduction band, which is in line with the measured temperature-independent magnetism. Steric protection by twelve Cp* ligands suppresses the intrinsic polyradicalar reactivity of the Cu43 Al12 core.

A global theoretical study of the (hyper)polarizabilities of alkali doped Si(10) is presented and discussed. First, a detailed picture about the low lying isomers of Si(10)Li, Si(10)Na, Si(10)K, Si(10)Li(2), Si(10)Na(2), and Si(10)K(2) has been obtained in a global manner. Then, the microscopic first (hyper)polarizabilities of the most stable configurations have been determined by means of ab initio methods of high predictive capability such as those based on the Møller-Plesset perturbation and coupled cluster theory, paying extra attention to the (hyper)polarizabilities of the open shell mono-doped systems Si(10)Li, Si(10)Na, Si(10)K, and the influence of spin contamination. These results were used to assess the performance of methods of low computational cost based on density functional theory (DFT) in the reliable computation of these properties in order to proceed with an in-depth study of their evolution as a function of the alkali metal, the cluster composition, and the cluster structure. The most interesting outcomes of the performed (hyper)polarizability study indicate that while alkali doping leaves the per atom polarizability practically unaffected, influences dramatically the hyperpolarizabilities of Si(10). The lowest energy structures of the mono-doped clusters are characterized by significantly enhanced hyperpolarizabilities as compared to the analogue neutral or charged bare silicon clusters Si(10) and Si(11), while, certain patterns governed by the type and the number of the doping agents are followed. The observed hyperpolarizability increase is found to be in close connection with specific cluster to alkali metal charge transfer excited states and to the cluster structures. Moreover, an interesting correlation between the anisotropy of the electron density, and the hyperpolarizabilities of these systems has been observed. Finally, it is important to note that the presented method assessment points out that among the various DFT functionals used in this work, (B3LYP, B3PW91, BhandHLYP, PBE0, CAM-B3LYP, LC-BLYP, LC-BPW91) only B3PW91 and PBE0 out of the seven provided a consistent quantitative performance for both polarizabilities and hyperpolarizabilities with respect to the ab initio methods utilized here. On the other hand, the long range corrected functionals LC-(U)BLYP and LC-(U)BPW91 (µ = 0.47) failed to supply quantitatively accurate hyperpolarizability results in all the studied clusters while the CAM-(U)B3LYP functional performs satisfactory only in the case of the Na and K doped systems.

Using an effective generation algorithm coupled with a PBE0/LANL2DZdp level of theory, 905 stable structures of Si(n) (n=3,15) have been found. This global search algorithm of minima exploration includes two original parts: the spheroidal generation, allowing the generation of rings, sphericals, m rings cylinders, and planar structures, and the raking optimization, which discards step by step the conformations that become physically unreasonable during the optimization process. The 142 isomers lying below 1 eV are reported and include the 28 structures reported in the literature. Conformational energies are well reproduced with respect to the values previously published (DeltaE=0,00+/-0,09 eV).
