Domain-based local pair natural orbital (DLPNO) coupled cluster single and double (CCSD) with triple perturbation (T) correction methods were applied for fourteen different S2 structures of the CaMn4O5 cluster in oxygen evolving complex (OEC) of photosystem II (PSII). The DLPNO-CCSD(T0) calculations elucidated that the right (R)-opened S2aYZ structure (a = O2− at the O(5) site, Y = W2 and Z = W1) with the low spin (LS) (S = 1/2, g = 2) state and two left (L)-opened S2aYZ structures with the high spin (HS) (S = 5/2, g = 4; g > 4) state were nearly degenerated in energy, supporting previous one LS-two HS model for the S2 state in compatible with recent EXAFS and EPR results.
