Abstract

The valence electronic excited states of Fe2(CO)9 have been studied using the time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). Both tribridged D3h and monobridged C2V structures have been considered, and the structure of selected low-lying singlet and triplet excited states have been optimized on the basis of the TDDFT analytical gradient. Optimized excited-state geometries are used to obtain an insight into certain aspects of the Fe2- (CO)9 photochemistry. The Fe2(CO)9 (D3h) first triplet and second singlet excited states are unbound with respect to dibridged Fe2(CO)8 + CO, and the first two monobridged Fe2(CO)9 (C2V) singlet states are unbound with respect to the Fe(CO)5 + Fe(CO)4 dissociation. These results are discussed in light of the experimental data available
