Paper Abstract

In this paper we compare the value of different molecular modeling techniques for the prediction of vibrational modes, especially in the mid- and far-infrared region. There is a wide range of different levels of theory available for molecular modelling - the choice depending on the kind of system to be investigated. For our calculations we use different theoretical approaches such as Hartree-Fock and Density functional theory. We also compare the performances of two available electronic structure programs-Gamess-US and Gaussian03. As examples, we use two different retinoids - all-trans retinal and all-trans retinoic acid - derivatives of Vitamin A.
