Abstract: Me4P[Pd(dmit)2]2 is an organic magnet that show long range antiferromagnetic ordering as indicated by Muon Spin Rotation measurements. Three muon centers were observed in the material. To determine the muon stopping sites, we have employed the Molecular Orbital Cluster Method to study the electronic structure of muonated Me4P[Pd(dmit)2]2. We used a cluster containing 1 formula unit in our investigations and applied the Density Functional Theory method. Three µ+ centers in the vicinity of three chemically non-equivalent sulfur sites, namely thione, thiol and thiolate were examined. All three µ+ sites were found to be energetically stable. In the pure Me4P[Pd(dmit)2]2 cluster, the spin densities of the doublet state system is spread throughout the entire dimer. Spin density of only about 0.13 is localized around the thiolate moiety. For all three µ+ centers, the lattice relaxation effect is important to stabilize the sites energetically.

Abstract: A multi-purpose pattern-fitting system, RIETAN-2000, has been extensively utilized to contribute to many structural studies. It offers a sophisticated structure-refinement technique of whole-pattern fitting based on the maximum-entropy method (MEM) in combination with a MEM analysis program PRIMA. We have recently completed a successor system, RIETAN-FP, to RIETAN-2000, adding new features such as standardization of crystal-structure data, an extended March-Dollase preferred-orientation function, and automation of imposing restraints on bond lengths and angles. Further, we have been developing a new three-dimensional visualization system, VESTA, using wxWidgets as a C++ application framework. VESTA excels in visualization, rendering, and manipulation of crystal structures and electron/nuclear densities determined by X-ray/ neutron diffraction and electronic-structure calculations. VESTA also enables us to display wave functions and electrostatic potentials calculated with part of these programs.
