Abstract

The population analysis of the hydrogen bond atoms was analyzed within the different basis sets for model molecular systems for the ground and low-lying excited electronic states. The Mulliken, Lőwdin and Hirshfeld methods were used in our investigations. It has been shown that normally the proton is transferred, however, in some excited electronic states the hydrogen atom displacement might be responsible for the tautomeric interconversion.
