The performance of a range of DFT functionals combined in a QM/MM approach is investigated in their ability to reliably provide geometries, electronic distributions and relative energies of a multi-centered open-shell mechanistic intermediate in the mechanism 8R–LOX. While the complex involves three open shell centers, the catalytically relevant arrangement of these electrons leads to the possibility of only having a quartet or sextet state.
