Virtual Excited State Reference for the Discovery of Electronic Materials Database (VERDE Materials DB): An Open-Access Resource for Ground and Excited State Properties of Organic Molecules

06 September 2019, Version 1
This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


VERDE materials DB is open-access and searchable via It is focused on light-responsive π-conjugated organic molecules with applications in green chemistry, organic solar cells, and organic redox flow batteries. It includes results of our active and past virtual screening studies; to date, more than 11,000 density functional theory (DFT) calculations have been performed on at least 1,282 molecules to obtain ground- and excited-state structures and photophysical properties.
