    Summary
    The hybrid density functional theory is applied to calculate the electron paramagnetic resonance parameters, i.e, the g- and A-tensors of some planar Cobalt(II) complexes with a C2v symmetry. Calculations were done for four systems: Co(acacen), Co(tacacen), Co(seacacen) and Co(sacsac)₂. The following hybrid functionals were employed: B3LYP, B3PW91, mPW1PW91 and PBE0. The expected large deviation of the g- and A-tensors is well reproduced, and is in very good agreement with the experimental observations. Comparative study shows that the PBE0 hybrid model yields the best agreement with experimental data.
