We present calculations of electronic structure and local magnetic moment of 3d metals in [Mn12O12(CH3COO)(16)(H2O)(24)].2CH(3)COOH.4H(2)O and I(C6H15N3)(6)Fe8O2(OH)(12)]Br-7(H2O)Br.8H2O, abbreviated Mn-12 and Fe8Br8, respectively. The comparison of calculated and experimental soft X-ray spectra shows that p-d mixing is very sensitive to the value of the local Coulomb repulsion parameter U. This result is found to be in agreement with experimental resonant inelastic X-ray scattering spectra (RIXS) and X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), which have been used to study electron correlation effects in magnetic clusters. The O 2p-Me 3d separation found in the experiment, is well reproduced by LDA + U band structure calculations, which include on-site Coulomb interactions. The 3d metal L-2,L-3 RIXS behaviour reflects the presence of the local magnetic moment and confirms the existence of the energy gap in the 3d band of the metal. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V.
