Abstract

We derive effective Hubbard-type Hamiltonians of κ-(BEDT-TTF) 2X, using an ab initio downfolding technique, for the first time for organic conductors. They contain dispersions of the highest occupied Wannier-type molecular orbitals with the nearest neighbor transfer t ∼ 0:067 eV for a metal X - Cu(NCS) 2 and 0.055 eV for a Mott insulator X - Cu 2(CN) 3, as well as screened Coulomb interactions. It shows unexpected differences from the conventional extended Hückel results, especially much stronger onsite interaction U ∼ 0:8eV (U/t ∼ 12{15) than the Hückel estimates (U/t ∼ 7{8) as well as an appreciable longer-ranged interaction. Reexamination on physics of this family of materials is required from this realistic basis.
