Abstract [en]

Multiconfigurational second-order perturbation theory calculations based on a complete active space reference wave function (CASPT2), employing active spaces of increasing size, are well converged at the level of 12 electrons in 12 orbitals for the singlet-triplet state-energy splittings of three supported copper-dioxygen and two supported copper-oxo complexes. Corresponding calculations using the restricted active space approach (RASPT2) offer similar accuracy with a significantly reduced computational overhead provided an inner (2,2) complete active space is included in the overall RAS space in order to account for strong biradical character in most of the compounds. The effects of the different active space choices and the outer RAS space excitations are examined, and conclusions are drawn with respect to the general applicability of the RASPT2 protocol.
