The planar coordination compounds of cobalt(iii) with bis(biuretato) ligands are highly unusual due to their intermediate spin triplet ground state. Density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT have been applied in a study of the structure and electronic spectroscopy of this type of coordination compounds. The investigations included prediction and spectroscopic measurements of the absorption and circular dichroism (CD), as well as an experimental study of the magnetic CD. The results obtained by TD-DFT were in excellent agreement with the observed spectral features, both regarding the d–d and the charge transfer regions. There was noted a systematic blue-shift of the TD-DFT results compared to experiment, corresponding to an offset of ca. 0.5 µm−1and a scaling factor of 1.25 for the transition energies. The DFT results are rationalized in terms of a qualitative MO analysis.
