We present a quantum-mechanical study on the solvent effects in the structure and electronic spectra of some cationic dyes: acridine orange, proflavine, safranine, neutral red, thionine and methylene blue. The geometry optimiza- tions were carried out with the AM1 and DFT (with B3LYP functional) methods and the theoretical spectra of the dyes under study were obtained with Zindo and time-dependent methods (TD–DFT and TD–HF). The solvation methodology adopted was the integral equation formulation (IEF) version of the polarizable continuum model (PCM).

Abstract

We present a quantum-mechanical study on the solvent effects in the structure and electronic spectra of some cationic dyes: acridine orange, proflavine, safranine, neutral red, thionine and methylene blue. The geometry optimiza- tions were carried out with the AM1 and DFT (with B3LYP functional) methods and the theoretical spectra of the dyes under study were obtained with Zindo and time-dependent methods (TD–DFT and TD–HF). The solvation methodology adopted was the integral equation formulation (IEF) version of the polarizable continuum model (PCM).
