The vibronic profiles of one-photon absorption spectra of dioxaborine heterocycles in gas phase and solution have been calculated at the Hartree-Fock and density-functional-theory levels. The polarizable continuum model has been applied to simulate the solvent effect, while the linear coupling model is used to compute the Franck-Condon and Herzberg-Teller contributions. It is found that a good agreement between theory and experiment can be achieved when the solvent effect and electron correlation are taken into account simultaneously. For the first excited charge-transfer state, the maximum of its Herzberg-Teller profile is blueshifted from that of the Franck-Condon profile. The shifted energy is found to be around 0.2 eV, which agrees well with the measured energy difference between two- and one-photon absorptions of the first excited state.
