Interpretation of the electronic spectra of Fe and Co porphyrins based on quantum-chemical calculations by the density functional method
Using the time-dependent formalism of the density functional theory (time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT)), the energies and intensities of the electronic transitions of some Fe and Co porphyrins and their anionic forms with different electron localization are studied quantum chemically. It is shown that, in the majority of the considered cases, the calculations performed with the B3LYP functional with a comparatively narrow basis set (6-31G) are quite consistent with previous calculations of these objects by the ZINDO/S-CI semiempirical method taking into account double excitations. Furthermore, the level of agreement of the B3LYP calculations with experiment is the same as that obtained with the ZINDO/S-CI method.
