Abstract: Zinc-complexed porphyrin and chlorophyll derivatives form functional aggregates with remarkable photophysical and optoelectronic properties. Understanding the type and strength of intermolecular interactions between these molecules is essential for designing new materials with desired morphology and functionality. The dimer interactions of a molecular set composed of porphyrin derivatives obtained by substitutional changes starting from free-base porphyrin is studied. It is found that the B97M-rV/def2-TZVP level of theory provides a good compromise between the accuracy and cost to get the dimer geometries and interaction energies (IEs). The neglect of the relaxation energy due to the change in the monomer configurations upon complex formation causes a more significant error than the basis set superposition error. The metal complexation increases the binding energy by about -6 to -8 kcal/mol, and the introduction of keto and hydroxy groups further stabilizes the dimers by about -20 kcal/mol. Although the saturation of one of the pyrrol double bonds does not change the IE, the addition of R groups increases it.
