Abstract: We report a systematic comparative study on dibenzo- [b,def]chrysene (angular) and dibenzo[def,mno] chrysene (compact) polyaromatic hydrocarbons and their bis-triisopropylsilylethynyl (TIPS)-functionalized and perhalogenated (F, Cl) counterparts. We used density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT to quantify the effects of morphology and chemical modifications on the electronic, optical, and transport properties. In particular, we compared electron affinity, ionization energy, fundamental gap, optical absorption, exciton binding energy, and reorganization energies for holes and electrons. For both TIPS-functionaliza- tion and halogen substitutions, we found larger electron affinities (nearly tripled with perchlorination). Ionization energies are found to be reduced for TIPS-functionalization (by ∼5%) and enhanced following halogen substitution (up to 17%). In both compact and angular dibenzochrysenes, the above trends reflect in a general reduction of the fundamental gap (up to 22%) following chemical modification. The effect of perhalogenation and TIPS-functionalization is always to increase molecular reorganization energies for both holes and electrons. Concerning the optical properties, we observe a redshift of the optical onset in all cases; for TIPS-functionalized molecules, in particular, we additionally found a remarkable enhancement of the absorption in the visible region.
