The Raman and absorption spectra of tetraphenylporphyrin (TPP) were calculated and compared to experiment. The computation was based on the harmonic molecular force field and electric tensors obtained ab initio at the BPW91/6-31G* level. Good agreement was found between experimental and calculated frequencies and intensities. In order to estimate whether induced optical activity in chiral complexes interferes with the signal of peptide vibrations, the vibrational circular dichroism (VCD… Expand

Vibration and Fluorescence Spectra of Porphyrin-Cored 2,2-Bis(methylol)-propionic Acid Dendrimers
From the results of time-dependent DFT calculations it is suggested that the TPPZn-cored dendrimers indicate strong vibronic interaction and increased Jahn-Teller distortion of the prophyrin core for larger d endrimer generations. Expand
