Implementation of Analytical Third Derivatives for a Fully Polarizable QM/Classical Hamiltonian

We extend the three-layer fully polarizable QM/MM/PCM model based on
fluctuating charges (FQ) [1-5] (QM/FQ/PCM) to the analytical evaluation of
energy third derivatives with respect to electric/magnetic field and nuclear
coordinates, which are used to calculate Raman and Raman Optical Activity (ROA)
spectra. In the QM/FQ/PCM the MM portion is described with FQs, i.e point
charges that can vary in agreement with the Electronegativity Equalization
Principle (EEP) [6]. A third layer is considered and described by means of the
Polarizable Continuum Model (PCM) [7]. To test the implementation, the method
is applied to the Raman and ROA spectra of (R)-Methyloxirane and (S)-Methyl
Lactate in aqueous solution [8], for which our approach has already been proven
to reliably reproduce other optical properties [9,10].
