CCL: tddft for metal complexes

 Sent to CCL by: "Luca Bertini" [luca.bertini(!)]
 Hi Tommy,
 As far as I know, there is not a safe recipe for excitation energies, as for
 the computation of the  ground state properties.
 In the recent literature you can find some paper about this issue. The most
 recent one (I guess...) is
 J. Chem. Theory Comput. 1, 953-962 (2005).
 Check it out!
 In any case, I would always recommend to computed excitation energies with
 different DFT funtionals, in order to understand which is the best one for
 your systems.
 Best, Luca B.
