Nonadiabatic dynamics simulations at the SA-CASSCF level were performed for the two most stable keto-N7H and keto-N9H tautomers of hypoxanthine in order to obtain deep insight into the lifetime of the optically bright S1((1)ππ*) excited state and the relevant decay mechanisms. Supporting calculations on the ground-state (S0) equilibrium structures and(More)
Extensive ab initio surface-hopping dynamics simulations have been used to explore the excited-state nonadiabatic decay of two biologically relevant hypoxanthine keto-N7H and keto-N9H tautomers in aqueous solution. QM/MM calculations and QM/MM-based MD simulations predict different hydrogen bonding networks around these nucleobase analogues, which influence(More)
Excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) of four imidazole derivatives, 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)imidazole (HPI), 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)benzimidazole (HPBI), 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)-1H-phenanthro[9,10-d]imidazole (HPPI) and 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)-1-phenyl-1H-phenanthro[9,10-d]imidazole (HPPPI), were studied by the sophisticated CASSCF/CASPT2 methodology.(More)
The B3LYP, CAM-B3LYP, and RCCSD(T) calculations have been used to determine the ground-state geometries of the linear polyyne cations HC(2n)H(+) (n=2-8). The CASSCF method has also been used to optimize the ground and first excited states. The present results indicate that these linear cations generally have an acetylenic structure H-C identical withC-C(More)
State-averaged complete active space self-consistent field (SA-CASSCF) calculations have been used to locate the four low-lying electronic states of thieno[3,4-b]pyrazine (TP), and their vertical excitation energies and emission energies have been determined by means of the multistate complete active space with second-order perturbation theory (MS-CASPT2)(More)
The equilibrium geometries and vibrational frequencies of the carbon chain cations H(2)C(2n)H(+) (n = 2-6) in the X(1)A(1) ground states have been investigated by the DFT-B3LYP method. The structures of the X(1)A(1) and 2(1)A(1) electronic states for H(2)C(2n)H(+) (n = 2-5) have also been optimized by the CASSCF approach. The vertical excitation energies(More)
An on-the-fly trajectory surface hopping dynamic simulation has been performed for revealing the multi-state nonadiabatic deactivation mechanism of coumarin. The mechanism involves three adiabatic excited states, S3(ππ*Lb), S2(nπ*, ππ*La) and S1(ππ*La, nπ*), and the ground state S0 at the four state-averaged complete active space self-consistent field,(More)
The excited-state decay of the biologically relevant allopurinol keto-N9H tautomer populated at the optically bright S1((1)ππ*) state in the gas phase and in aqueous solution has been explored theoretically. In solution, the hybrid quantum-mechanical/molecular-mechanical simulations were performed, where the QM region (keto-N9H) was treated at the ab initio(More)
Enol-keto proton tautomerization and cis-trans isomerization reactions of a novel excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) fluorophore of BTImP and its protonated form (BTImP+) were explored using density functional theory/time-dependent density functional theory (DFT/TD-DFT) computational methods with a B3LYP hybrid functional and the(More)
Excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) reactions occurring in the S1 state for five molecules, which possess five/six-membered ring intramolecular NH···N or OH···N hydrogen bonds bearing quinoline or 2-phenylpyridine moiety, have been described in detail by the time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) approach using the B3LYP hybrid(More)
