ABSTRACT This study reports the characterization of disperse red 1 acrylate compound by spectral techniques and quantum chemical calculations. The spectroscopic properties were analyzed by FT-IR, UV-vis, (1)H NMR and (13)C NMR techniques. FT-IR spectrum in solid state was recorded in the region 4000-400 cm(-1). The UV-vis absorption spectrum of the compound that dissolved in methanol was recorded in the range of 200-800 nm. The (1)H and (13)C NMR spectra were recorded in CDCl(3) solution. The structural and spectroscopic data of the molecule in the ground state were calculated using density functional theory (DFT) employing B3LYP exchange correlation and the 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The vibrational wavenumbers were calculated and scaled values were compared with experimental FT-IR spectrum. A satisfactory consistency between the experimental and theoretical spectra was obtained and it shows that the hybrid DFT method is very useful in predicting accurate vibrational structure, especially for high-frequency region. The complete assignments were performed on the basis of the experimental results and total energy distribution (TED) of the vibrational modes, calculated with scaled quantum mechanics (SQM) method. Isotropic chemical shifts were calculated using the gauge-invariant atomic orbital (GIAO) method. A study on the electronic properties were performed by timedependent DFT (TD-DFT) and CIS(D) approach. To investigate non linear optical properties, the electric dipole moment μ, polarizability α, anisotropy of polarizability Δα and molecular first hyperpolarizability β were computed. The linear polarizabilities and first hyperpolarizabilities of the studied molecule indicate that the compound can be a good candidate of nonlinear optical materials.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, the structural and vibrational analysis of 3,4-pyridinedicarboxylic acid (3,4-PDCA) are presented using experimental techniques as FT-IR, FT-Raman, NMR, UV and quantum chemical calculations. FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of 3,4-pyridinedicarboxylic acid in the solid phase are recorded in the region 4000-400cm(-1) and 4000-50cm(-1), respectively. The geometrical parameters and energies of all different and possible monomer, dimer, anion(-1) and anion(-2) conformers of 3,4-PDCA are obtained from Density Functional Theory (DFT) with B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) basis set. There are sixteen conformers (C1C16) for this molecule (neutral form). The most stable conformer of 3,4-PDCA is the C1 conformer. The complete assignments are performed on the basis of the total energy distribution (TED) of the vibrational modes calculated with scaled quantum mechanics (SQM) method. (1)H and (13)C NMR spectra are recorded and the chemical shifts are calculated by using DFT/B3LYP methods with 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The UV absorption spectrum of the studied compound is recorded in the range of 200-400nm by dissolved in ethanol. The optimized geometric parameters were compared with experimental data via the X-ray results derived from complexes of this molecule. In addition these, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP), thermodynamic and electronic properties, HOMO-LUMO energies and Mulliken atomic charges, are performed.

    ABSTRACT: The effect of ruthenium on the performance of porphyrin dye and porphyrin–fullerene (PF) dyad solar cells is investigated by using density functional theory and time-dependant density functional theory calculations. The results reveal that ruthenium facilitates rapid electron injection from porphyrin to fullerene, narrows the band gaps of porphyrin dye and PF dyad and alters the density of states near the corresponding Fermi levels. The HOMOs are localised on the donor moieties and the LUMOs on the acceptor moieties. The donor and acceptor dyads form good donor–acceptor pairs for photo-to-current conversion under the effect of ruthenium. HOMOs of porphyrin and ruthenium metalloporphyrin dyes fall within the (TiO2)60 and Ti38O76 gaps, and support the issue of typical interfacial electron transfer reaction. The calculated transition energies of porphyrin are almost insensitive to ethanol solvent effects. The introduction of ruthenium to the porphyrin ring leads to more active nonlinear optical performance, stronger response to the external electric field and induces higher photo-to-current conversion efficiency. Moreover, ruthenium shifts the absorption bands of porphyrin and makes it a potential candidate for harvesting light for photovoltaic applications.

    ABSTRACT: Comprehensive investigation of geometrical and electronic structure in ground as well as the first excited state of 3,5-Difluoroaniline (C6H5NF2) was carried out. The experimentally observed spectral data (FT-TR and FT-Raman) of the title compound was compared with the spectral data obtained by DFT/B3LYP method using 6-311++G(d,p) basis set. The molecular properties like dipole moment, polarizability, first static hyperpolarizability, molecular electrostatic potential surface (MEPs), and contour map were calculated to get a better insight of the properties of the title molecule. Natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis was applied to study stability of the molecule arising from charge delocalization. UV-Vis spectrum of the title compound was also recorded and the electronic properties, such as Frontier orbitals and band gap energies were measured by TD-DFT approach. Total and partial density of state (TDOS and PDOS) and also overlap population density of state (OPDOS) diagrams analysis were presented. Global and local reactivity descriptors were computed to predict reactivity and reactive sites on the molecule. (1)H and (13)C NMR spectra by using gauge including atomic orbital (GIAO) method of studied compound were compared with experimental data obtained. Moreover, the thermodynamic properties were evaluated.
