Abstract [en]

The molecular geometry, electronic structure and electronic spectra and the energy levels of the molecular orbitals responsible for the photophysical characteristics of a series of solvent tunable [Ru(x,x[prime or minute]-dmb)(CN)4]2- complexes (where x,x[prime or minute]-dmb = x,x[prime or minute]-dimethyl-2,2[prime or minute]-bipyridine) were calculated by density-functional theory-based quantum chemical methods, with the purpose of proposing for experimental study the best candidate for sensitizing electron- and energy transfer processes or for light induced structural changes in the molecule. The methods applied include geometry optimization using the B3LYP functional combination and various basis sets, time-dependent density functional theory with the B3LYP and PBE0 functionals, with and without explicit inclusion of coordinated solvent H2O molecules and the conductor-like polarizable continuum model for solvation. The accuracy of the theoretical predictions was tested by experiments: the model compounds have been synthesized and characterized by various spectroscopic methods, such as 1H-NMR, UV-Vis absorption and emission spectroscopy and by cyclic voltammetry. Excellent correlation was found between the theoretically calculated and the experimentally determined photophysical and photochemical characteristics. The electronic transition energies measured in water are superbly reproduced by TD-PBE0 and well by TD-B3LYP, but the performance of both functionals is worse if the solvent is acetonitrile.
