Abstract
The energies of electron attachment associated with temporary occupation of pi* and sigma* virtual orbitals of the pentaheterocyclic rhodanine molecule are measured in the gas phase with electron transmission spectroscopy (ETS). The corresponding orbital energies of the neutral molecule, supplied by B3LYP/6-31G(d) calculations and scaled using an empirically calibrated linear equation, are compared with the experimental vertical attachment energies (VAEs). The same computational procedure is applied to rhodanine-3-acetic acid, proposed as a possible component of dye-sensitized solar cells. In addition, the (positive) vertical and adiabatic electron affinities ar...
