TD-DFT calculations, NBO analysis and electronic absorption spectra of some thiazolo[3,2-a]pyridine derivatives

Khalil, A. Kh ; Halim, Shimaa Abdel 


© 2017 Elsevier B.V. The electronic structure of thiazolo[3,2-a]pyridine and some of its derivatives are investigated theoretically using B3LYB/6-311G (d, p) method. The calculations show that all the studied compounds 1–5 are non-planar, as indicated from the dihedral angles. The electronic absorption spectra of the studied compounds are recorded in the UV–VIS region, in both DMF and Dioxane solvents. Assignments of the observed electronic transitions are facilitated via time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) computations. Band maxima (λmax) and intensities of the spectra are found to have solvent dependence reflected as blue and red shifts. Electronic configurations contributing to each excited state are identified and the relevant MOs are characterized. The extent of delocalization and intermolecular charge transfer are estimated and discussed in terms of natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis and second order perturbation interactions between donor and acceptor MOs. The theoretical spectra computed at “A new hybrid exchange-correlation functional using the Coulomb-attenuating method (CAM-B3LYP),” at the 6-311G (d, p) bases set in gas phase and with the Polarizable Continuum Model (PCM) in Dioxane and DMF indicate a good agreement with the observed spectra.
