Optimally-tuned range-separated hybrid functionals for accurate molecular excited-state geometries — •Bernhard Kretz and David A. Egger — Technical University of Munich, Germany

Molecular excited-state (ES) potential energy surfaces (PES) obtained by computational methods can shed light on reaction mechanisms and pathways in photocatalytic reactions. These ES PES can be calculated using either time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) or high-level wave-function methods. TD-DFT based calculations are computationally very efficient, but often lack the accuracy achieved by computationally more expensive wave-function methods[1]. Recently, the class of optimally-tuned range-separated hybrid (OT-RSH) functionals[2] was developed which promises to reduce the gap in accuracy.

In our recent work[3], by comparison with high accuracy wave-function data from literature, we assessed the accuracy of TD-DFT and OT-RSH for the excited-state geometries for a selection of organic molecules with varying complexity of their ES PES. We mainly focused on the structural parameters of the lowest-excited singlet states. Our results show that OT-RSH maintains the accuracy of conventional functionals for small molecules, while it improves the description of more complex ES PESs involving charge-transfer states.
