Talk: excited-state aromaticity

Today Felix is giving a talk at the Computational PhotoChemistry Online Meeting 2021: Tuning photophysical properties via excited-state aromaticity

The talk discusses the effects of aromaticity on excited-state energies and other properties. Strategies for quantifying and visualising aromaticity are shown as well.

Three recent papers are discussed:

Talk: Excited states of transition metal complexes

On Thursday, 20/06, Felix will give a talk at the CECAM workshop on Theoretical and Computational Inorganic Photochemistry in Toulouse. This talk will discuss how excited states in transition metal complexes can be assigned completely automatically without ever looking at an orbital. It is shown how this method can be used for a high-throughput analysis of excited states as well as for benchmarking excited-state computations. Finally, a quick outlook will be given on how correlation effects can be visualised using a newly developed tool for computing conditional electron/hole densities.
