Re^2: The best dft method for TDDFT of C=O containing compounds


Dear Sanya,
I have calculated quinozolin-4-one by TDDFT/B3LYP1(PBE0)/6-31G(d,p).

>can you show your molecule? In some cases, band assignment made by experimentalists is simply incorrect. In other cases, it is TDDFT that misplaces the transitions of different nature (n-pi, pi-pi*, or charge-transfer). You can look at the effect of HF exchange in the functional by using the following series: BLYP (0% HF exchange) - B3LYP (20%) - BHHLYP (50%) - LYP (100%). If the effect is strong, CASSCF-XMCQDPT can be the method of choice. An alternative way is to use range-separated hybrid functionals, such as LC-BLYP or CAM-B3LYP (implemented in GAMESS-US), although the results can still be questionable.

>>Dear Alex and Firefly users,
>>I computed UV/Vis spectra of C=O containing aromatic compounds by TDDFT (B3LYP1). But, I canít found agreement between experiment and TDDFT. In the experiment, usually, n-pi* transition of the C=O group observed in the longest wavelength region then pi-pi* transition. Besides, n-pi and pi-pi* transitions also observed pi-pi* transition caused by charge transfer from aromatic fragment to the C=O group.

>>Thanks in advance!
