The updated version of the dataset contains all original computational results, including validation of the level of theory, molecular structures, and analysis spreadsheets that are in support of our experimental observations of spontaneous reactivity of anthralin/dithranol molecule with molecular oxygen without any catalyst or co-substrate.
The paper was published in Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2020, 85(2), 1315–1321 (DOI: 10.1021/acs.joc.9b03133).

In the meantime, the science was also also presented at the 8th ELSI Symposium, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo (Japan); February 3-7, 2020 in the context of molecular catalysis and their role in the chemical evolution of the building blocks of life.

This version also has an important update that is being exclusively published here on Zenodo. The selected level of theory (MN15 functional with triple-zeta quality basis set supplemented with BOTH diffuse and polarization basis functions) is further confirmed to be one of the most reasonable one among 98 commonly used functionals.
