    Project supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (No. 50973076), the Science and Technology Program of Sichuan Province (No. 2010JY0041), and the Scientific Reaserch Foundation of Sichuan Normal University (Nos. 09ZDL03, 025156).

The structures, electronic absorption spectra and thermodynamic properties of crocetin dimethyl ester were calculated by using the density functional theory B3LYP method. Then polarized continuum models of tomasi (PCM) have been used to discuss solvent effects. The computational results showed that solvents have no influence on frontier molecular orbital features of crocetin dimethyl ester and solvents action made the maximum absorption wavelength red-shifted about 42 nm. The relationship formulas between temperature and the gaseous thermodynamic properties of crocetin dimethyl ester are as follows: CmpΘ =189.782+0.925T, SmΘ =457.503+1.366T, HmΘ =1164.899+0.195T+4.671×10-4T2, GmΘ =1164.899-0.263T-8.989×10-4T2. The standard molar formed enthalpy and free energy of crocetin dimethyl ester molecular are respectively -1180.67 and -733.23 kJ·mol-1 at 298.15 K.
