Calculation of the vibrational properties of chlorophyll a in solution.

Chlorophyll a (Chl-a) is at the heart of solar energy capture and conversion in plants. Because of this, Chl-a has been the subject of innumerable studies. Recently, we have been able to use quantum mechanical methods to calculate the vibrational properties of neutral and oxidized Chl-a in the gas phase [Wang, R.; Parameswaran, S.; Hastings, G.
