Abstract [en]

The density functional theory calculations were performed to investigate the specific solvent effects on the optical absorption spectrum of copper(II) hexafluoroacetylacetonate complex in pyridine. The effects of single and double coordination of pyridine molecules at axial position of bis(hexafluoroacetylacetonate) copper(II) indicate that both positions and intensities of 3d3d electronic transitions are strongly dependent on the coordination environment around the copper(II) complex. The results indicate that the nature of the electron-acceptor atoms in the equatorial ligands plays an important role in the number of solvent molecules in the first solvation shell of copper(II) acac systems.
