Abstract

The use of density functional theory (DFT) to calculate the proton transfer phenomena of dimeric aluminum (III) water complexes. Investigations show that the species with a small amount of charge had the tendancy towards a five-coordinate trigonal bipyramid configuration. It was found that the water molecules could not provide enough negative charge to serve as a bridging ligand to stabilize the Al (III) ions. The results show that the energy differences among the isomers of hydroxyl Al could convert into each other easily at room temperature.
