- The complexes of a DNA base bound to graphitic systems are studied. Considering naphthalene as the simplest graphitic system, DNA base-naphthalene complexes are scrutinized at high levels of ab initio theory including coupled cluster theory with singles, doubles, and perturbative triples excitations [CCSD(T)] at the complete basis set (CBS) limit. The stacked configurations are the most stable, where the CCSD(T)/CBS binding energies of guanine, adenine, thymine, and cytosine are 9.31, 8.48, 8.53, 7.30 kcal/mol, respectively. The energy components are investigated using symmetry-adapted perturbation theory based on density functional theory including the dispersion energy. We compared the CCSD(T)/CBS results with several density functional methods applicable to periodic systems. Considering accuracy and availability, the optB86b nonlocal functional and the Tkatchenko-Scheffler functional are used to study the binding energies of nucleobases on graphene. The predicted values are 18-24 kcal/mol, though many-body effects on screening and energy need to be further considered.
