As known since about two decades, R12 methods, which include terms linear in the interelectronic distance r(12) in the wave function, improve substantially the basis set convergence of the ground state correlation energy. In a previous study, however, it was found that the same approach does not give a similar systematic improvement if applied to excited(More)
The UV spectra of three different conformers of the guanine/cytosine base pair were recorded recently with UV-IR double-resonance techniques in a supersonic jet [Abo-Riziq, A., Grace, L., Nir, E., Kabelac, M., Hobza, P. & de Vries, M. S. (2005) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 102, 20-23]. The spectra provide evidence for a very efficient excited-state(More)
We report accurate geometries and harmonic force fields for trans- and cis-azobenzene determined by second-order Møller-Plesset perturbation theory. For the trans isomer, the planar structure with C(2h) symmetry, found in a recent gas electron diffraction experiment, is verified. The calculated vibrational spectra are compared with experimental data and(More)
The magnesium atom of chlorophylls (Chls) is always five- or six-coordinated within chlorophyll-protein complexes which are the main light-harvesting systems of plants, algae and most photosynthetic bacteria. Due to the presence of stereocenters and the axial ligation of magnesium the two faces of Chls are diastereotopic. It has been previously recognized(More)

TDDFT and RI-CC2 calculations have been performed on the excited-state intramolecular proton transfer in malonaldehyde, o-hydroxybenzaldehyde, salicylic acid, 7-hydroxy-1-indanone, and 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)benzothiazole. Vertical and adiabatic excitation energies have been computed for the npi and pipi states. Overall, we have found that both RI-CC2 and(More)
OPEP is a suite of FORTRAN programs targeted at the optimal partitioning of molecular electric properties. It includes an interactive module for the construction of Cartesian grids of points, on which either the molecular electrostatic potential or the induction energy is mapped. The generation of distributed multipoles and polarizabilities is achieved(More)
We present a combination of the polarizable embedding (PE) method with the resolution-of-the-identity implementation of the approximate coupled-cluster singles and doubles method CC2. The new approach, termed PERI-CC2, allows one to study excited state phenomena of large solvated molecular systems with an accurate correlated wave function method. Central to(More)
4-(N,N-Dimethyl-amino)benzonitrile (DMABN) is a prototype molecule for dual fluorescence. The anomalous emission has been attributed to an intramolecular charge-transfer (ICT) state, and the structure of the latter is still subject to some controversy. We applied a recently developed analytical gradient code for the approximate coupled-cluster(More)
