Uranium basis sets
« on: September 06, 2016, 02:58:00 PM »

I used def-SVP and def-TZVPP basis sets for uranium, but I had problem to find the reference in Turbomole V6.5, can you help me, please?

I would very appreciate the def2-...-2c basis for uranium in order to be able to include spin-orbital interaction, is it included in the latest version, please?

Best regards,

$TURBODIR/basen/u lists the following reference for the  def-SVP/def-TZVPP basis set:
Xiaoyan Cao, Michael Dolg, J. Molec. Struct. 673 (2004) 203 - 209
The paper "Segmented contraction scheme for small-core actinide pseudopotential basis sets is available here":

I agree that a 2C-basis set with the DHF ECP would be a great addition (J. Phys. Chem. A 2009, 113, 12573–12581)!
