The role of electron- and proton-transfer processes in the photophysics of hydrogen-bonded molecular systems has been investigated with ab initio electronic-structure calculations. Adopting indole, pyridine, and ammonia as molecular building blocks, we discuss generic mechanisms of the photophysics of isolated aromatic chromophores (indole), complexes of π systems ...

The conical intersections of the dissociative 1πσ* excited state with the lowest 1ππ* excited state and the electronic ground state of 9H-adenine have been investigated with multireference electronic structure calculations. Adiabatic and quasidiabatic potential energy surfaces and coupling elements were calculated as a function of the NH stretch coordinate of the ... READ MORE
