Abstract

Energy minimisation of 2,6-bis(2,4-dichlorobenzylidene)cyclohexanone using dispersion-corrected Density Functional Theory (DFT-D) suggested a subtle low-temperature phase transition that has been verified by experiment. The results demonstrate that DFT-D calculations are sufficiently reliable to guide experimental studies towards targets most likely to exhibit interesting temperature-dependent structural change.
