Abstract

Although a major goal of inorganic spectroscopy is to determine the energetics of the low-lying spin states of transition metal complexes, surprisingly little has been accomplished in this respect by means of accurate ab initio calculations. Against this context, we present ab initio multiconfiguration reference perturbation theory (CASPT2) calculations with large basis sets on the low-lying spin states of Fe(III)(P)Cl and [Fe(P)Cl](+) (P(2-)=porphinato). The CASPT2 results on the energetics of various low-lying spin states studied differ significantly, sometimes even dramatically, from those obtained from density functional theory calculations.
