The excited state proton/hydrogen transfer (ESPT/ESHT) is one of the most important reaction pathways to many chemicals, biological phenomena such as DNA damage, radiation-induced cell damages, etc. In this, a molecule absorbs a UV-VIS photon, and in the excited electronic state, it exhibits a proton migration process within the molecular system. Understanding the ESPT mechanism is far from complete as many eminent research groups proposed different pathways for identical systems. In this project, I have been computationally investigating NH•••N proton transfer pathways in 2-(2’/3’/4’)-peridylbenzimidazole molecules in the excited state via hydrogen bonded clusters with a water molecule. We have been using B3LYP method with the def2-TZVPP basic set to calculate ground and first excited states of the monomer and their isomers (M) as well as the hydrogen bonded clusters with one and two water molecules M-(H2O) and M-(H2O)2. Here we aim to investigate the ESPT pathways at the molecular level by studying isolated hydrogen-bonded molecular clusters in the excited state.
