Computer simulations of the solvation dynamics of Coumarin 153 in dimethylsulfoxide
Chemical Physics Letters. Elsevier Science Bv, v. 370, n. 41795, n. 683, n. 689, 2003.
We report molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of the solvation dynamics of Coumarin 153 in liquid dimethylsulfoxide using two distinct sets of partial charges for the coumarin probe. The excited state dipole moment of the coumarin and the dynamic Stokes shift in solution depend significantly on the type of charge distributions used. Nevertheless, the overall characteristics of the solvation responses obtained from both sets of charges are very similar and show good agreement with time-dependent Stokes shift experiments. Microscopic details of the solvent reorganization around the probe are discussed in light of the charge transfer upon photoexcitation. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.37041795683689
