Abstract

We present a hybrid time-dependent density functional/molecular mechanics (TDDFT/MM) simulation study on the optical properties of aminocoumarins in gas phase and solution. As solvation is described through a molecular approach, the effects due to the inhomogeneities of the electric field of the solvent molecules are fully included. We focus on the ground state and first excited singlet state properties of C151, C35 and C153, three aminocoumarins for which a homogeneous set of experimental data is available. Our approach is able to give quantitative information on the redshifts in water and acetonitrile, two solvents which show different H-bonding properties. In addition, it is able to quantify the effects of chemical substituents, such as the spectral redshift due to the increased alkylation at the amino position.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
