Thyroxine: A Theoretical Study of the Vibrational and Electronic Properties
Keywords:Thyroxine, density functional theory, Raman
Through this work, we systematically studied the structural, vibrational and electronic properties of the fundamental state of the isolated thyroxine(3,5,3’,5-tetraiodothyronine). The minimum energy structures and properties were obtained using the Density Functional Theory (DFT). Our simulation results were compared with experimental results, including infra-red and Raman spectroscopy with an emphasis on the properties of iodine atoms. The UV-vis spectrum calculated in this work is the first result of this model for the thyroxine molecule.
