Assessment of the performance of density-functional methods for calculations on iron porphyrins and related compounds

The behaviors of a large number of GGA, meta-GGA, and hybrid-GGA density functionals in describing the spin-state energetics of iron porphyrins and related compounds have been investigated. There is a large variation in performance between the various functionals for the calculations of the high-spin state relative energies. Most GGA and meta-GGA… (More)
