  The present paper reports the theoretical investigations of the charge transfer (CT) characterization of various electron donor-acceptor complexes of o-chloranil with substituted anilines, namely, o-toluidine, N-methylaniline, N,N-dimethylaniline, N,N-dimethyl-p-toluidine and 2,4-dimethylaniline in vacuo employing density functional theory (DFT) and time dependent DFT methods. The CT transition energies for all the o-chloranil/aniline complexes have been enumerated by time dependent DFT calculations. It is found that the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital states are localized on the o-chloranil and that the highest occupied molecular orbital states are positioned on the aniline moiety. Molecular electrostatic potential maps reveal the strong propensity of electron transfer from aniline(s) to o-chloranil in o-chloranil/aniline(s) CT complex(s).
