In this study, optimized geometry, spectroscopic (FT-IR, FT-Raman, UV) analysis, and electronic structure analysis of Abacavir were investigated by utilizing DFT/B3LYP with 6-31G(d,p) as a basis set. Complete vibrational assignments and correlation of the fundamental modes for the title compound were carried out. The calculated molecular geometry has been compared with available X-ray data of Abacavir. The calculated HOMO and LUMO energies show that charge transfer occurs within the molecule. The molecular stability and bond strength have been investigated by applying the Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) analysis. The computational molecular docking studies of title compound have been performed.
