Density Functional Theory Based Investigation of (2E)-1-(Anthracen-9-yl)-3-(3,4-Dichlorophenyl)Prop-2-En-1-One

Authors(1) :-R. K. Dongare

DFT/B3LYP method has been employed to study recently synthesized (2E)-1-(Anthracen-9-yl)-3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)prop-2-en-1-one. In the present work, the calculated values, i.e. geometric parameters, mulliken charges, frontier orbital analysis, dipole moments and QSAR properties are reported.
