The sixth blind test of organic crystal structure prediction (CSP) methods has been held, with five target systems: a small nearly rigid molecule, a polymorphic former drug candidate, a chloride salt hydrate, a co-crystal and a bulky flexible molecule. This blind test has seen substantial growth in the number of participants, with the broad range of prediction methods giving a unique insight into the state of the art in the field. Significant progress has been seen in treating flexible molecules, usage of hierarchical approaches to ranking structures, the application of density-functional approximations, and the establishment of new workflows and `best practices' for performing CSP calculations. All of the targets, apart from a single potentially disordered Z$^\prime$ = 2 polymorph of the drug candidate, were predicted by at least one submission. Despite many remaining challenges, it is clear that CSP methods are becoming more applicable to a wider range of real systems, including salts, hydrates and larger flexible molecules. The results also highlight the potential for CSP calculations to complement and augment experimental studies of organic solid forms. [less ▲]

We show that electrodynamic dipolar interactions, responsible for long-range fluctuations in matter, play a significant role in the stability of molecular crystals. Density functional theory calculations with van der Waals interactions determined from a semilocal ``atom-in-a-molecule'' model result in a large overestimation of the dielectric constants and sublimation enthalpies for polyacene crystals from naphthalene to pentacene, whereas an accurate treatment of nonlocal electrodynamic response leads to an agreement with the measured values for both quantities. Our findings suggest that collective response effects play a substantial role not only for optical excitations, but also for cohesive properties of noncovalently bound molecular crystals.

We present a comparative assessment of the accuracy of two different approaches for evaluating dispersion interactions: interatomic pairwise corrections and semiempirical meta-generalized-gradient-approximation (meta-GGA)-based functionals. This is achieved by employing conventional (semi)local and (screened-)hybrid functionals, as well as semiempirical hybrid and nonhybrid meta-GGA functionals of the M06 family, with and without interatomic pairwise Tkatchenko Scheffler corrections. All of those are tested against the benchmark S22 set of weakly bound systems a representative larger molecular complex (dimer of NiPc molecules), and a representative dispersively bound solid (hexagonal boron nitride). For the 522 database, we also compare our results with those obtained from the pairwise correction of Grimme (DFT-D3) and nonlocal Langreth Lundqvist furtctionals (vdW-DF1 and vdW-DF2). We find that the semiempirical kinetic-energy-density dependence introduced in the M06 functionals mimics some of the nonlocal correlation needed to describe dispersion. However, long-range contributions are still missing. Pair-wise interatomic corrections, applied to conventional semilocal or hybrid functionals, or to M06 functionals, provide for a satisfactory level of accuracy irrespectively of the underlying functional. Specifically, screened-hybrid functionals such as the.Heyd Scuseria Ernzerhof (HSE) approach reduce self-interaction errors in systems possessing both localized and delocalized orbitals and can be applied to both finite and extended systems. Therefore, they serve as a useful underlying functional for dispersion corrections. [less ▲]

The development of new types of solar cells is driven by the need for clean and sustainable energy. In this respect dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC) are considered as a promising route for departing from the traditional solid state cells. The physical insight provided by computational modeling may help develop improved DSCs. To this end, it is important to obtain an accurate description of the electronic structure, including the fundamental gaps and level alignment at the dye-TiO2 interface. This requires a treatment beyond ground-state density functional theory (DFT). We present a many-body perturbation theory study, within the G(0)W(0) approximation, of two of the crystalline phases of dye-sensitized TiO2 clusters, reported by Benedict and Coppens, [J. Am. Chem. Soc. 132, 2938 (2010)]. We obtain geometries in good agreement with the experiment by using DFT with the Tkatchenko-Scheffler van der Waals correction. We demonstrate that even when DFT gives a good description of the valence spectrum and a qualitatively correct picture of the electronic structure of the dye-TiO2 interface, G(0)W(0) calculations yield more valuable quantitative information regarding the fundamental gaps and level alignment. In addition, we systematically investigate the issues pertaining to G(0)W(0) calculations, namely: (i) convergence with respect to the number of basis functions, (ii) dependence on the mean-field starting point, and (iii) the validity of the assumption that the DFT wave function is a good approximation to the quasiparticle wave function. We show how these issues are manifested for dye molecules and for dye-sensitized TiO2 clusters. [less ▲]
