Abstract:

The geometries of ground and excited states of a series of ruthenium complexes [Ru(iph)(L)2]2+(L=cpy (1), mpy (2), npy (3); iph=2,9-di(1-methyl-2-imidazole)-1,10-phenanthroline, cpy=4-cyano pyridine, mpy=4-methyl pyridine, npy=4-N-methyl pyridine) were optimized by the Becke′s three-parameter functional and the Lee-Yang-Parr (B3LYP) functional and unrestricted B3LYP methods, respectively. Time- dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) method at the B3LYP level together with the polarized continuum model (PCM) were used to obtain their absorption and phosphorescent emission spectra in acetone media based on their optimized ground and excited-state geometries. The results revealed that the optimized structural parameters agreed well with the corresponding experimental results. The highest occupied molecular orbitals were localized mainly on the d orbital of the metal and the π orbital of the iph ligand for 1 and 2, and the npy ligand for 3, while the lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals were mainly composed of π* orbital of the iph ligand. Therefore, the lowest-lying absorptions and emissions were assigned to the metal to ligand charge transfer (MLCT)/intra-ligand charge transfer (ILCT) transition for 1 and 2, and the ligand to ligand charge transfer (LLCT) tthorLogOn.action">Online Submission
