The article reports that chemists have successfully engineered a molecule that is between benzene and its inorganic equivalent borazine. Within this molecule, one of benzene's carbon atoms is replaced with a nitrogen and another with a boron atom. This was accomplished by David Dixon of the University of Alabama, Lev Zakharov of the University of Oregon, and their respective colleagues.

    The time-dependent restricted-active-space self-consistent-field singles (TD-RASSCF-S) method is presented for investigating TD many-electron dynamics in atoms and molecules. Adopting the SCF notion from the muticonfigurational TD Hartree-Fock (MCTDHF) method and the RAS scheme (single-orbital...
