The structures of binuclear Au(I) complexes, [Au2(SHCH2SH)2]2+(1), [Au2(SHCH2SH)- PH2CH2PH2]]2+ (2), [Au2(PH2CH2PH2)2]2+ (3), [Au2(SHCH2SH)(SCH2S)] (4), [Au2(PH2CH2PH2)(SCH2S)] (5) and [Au2(SCH2S)2]2- (6), in the ground and excited states were optimized by the MP2 and CIS methods, respectively. The calculated results showed that there exist weak attractive Au(I)-Au(I) interactions for 16 in the ground states, but those are greatly streghtened for 15 and drastically weakened for 6 in the excited states. Our calculated results agree with experimental observations. The CIS calculations reveal that with the exchange of thioether, phosphine and thiolate ligands, the transition properties of the Au(I) complexes vary regularly from MC→MMLCT→MLCT (MC: metal-centered; MMLCT: metal-metal to ligand charge transfer; MLCT: metal to ligand charge transfer).

Key words: excited state, weak metal-metal interaction, binuclear Au(I) complex, ab initio method
