Abstract: The relation between copper atomic charges and metal-ligand interaction energies obtained by PM6 and DFT-B3LYP methods for cytotoxicity prediction of model rutile nanoparticles [Ti40O124H81]7–, [Ti7O28H26]2–, [Ti2O10H10]2–, [Ti7O30H30]2– and their Cu(II) complexes is investigated. Except for Mulliken charges, very good statistical parameters were obtained for the linear relation between the results obtained by both methods if standard accuracy of quantum-chemical calculations is achieved.

Keywords: DFT — B3LYP and PM6 methods, linear regression, metal-ligand interaction energy, population analyses, statistical parameters
