In this study S-2-picolyl-&bita;-N-(2-acetylpyrrole) dithiocarbazate Schiff base has been subjected to theoretical studies by using Semi-empirical AM1 and PM3 quantum chemical methods. The molecular geometry, vibration frequencies, HOMO-LUMO energy gap, molecular hardness (η), ionization energy (IE), electron affinity (EA), total energy and dipole moment were analyzed. The theoretically obtained results were found to be consistent with the experimental data reported. A good correlation has been observed between experimental and calculated values for vibration modes.
