  • TmoleX newly supported features and job types:
    • An alternative solver for the basic self-consistent field (SCF) solutions for Hartree-Fock or DFT can be enabled. This new Augmented Roothaan-Hall (ARH) algorithm can be activated as an option if the default settings do not lead to convergence in complex electronic structure cases.
    • Sum formula of molecules are shown in batch job table and result overviews.
    • For transition state optimizations Hessian data from external sources or other jobs can be added manually to the input data to avoid re-calculation of this time consuming task.
    • New option in the 3D molecular builder to run pre-optimizations using xTB in parallel on more than one core.
    • Selection of atoms in the gradient viewer of the 3D Molecular Builder of TmoleX is enabled to display labels and add measurements.

Fixed Defects in TmoleX
  • For T and Th symmetry TmoleX displayed the number of electrons incorrectly in the Molecular Attributes panel. The error was in the visualization only, TURBOMOLE calculations have not been affected.
  • The COSMOview molecule viewer showed inaccessible grey areas if the display of the molecule was enlarged (scaling of display > 100%). This problem is resolved.
  • For Lithium TmoleX failed to read in def2-QZVP and dhf-QZVP basis sets. 
  • The creation of 3D electron density distributions (.plt, .plv) which can be visualized using BIOVIA TURBOMOLE was not working if used from an environment variable, which is fixed now. A workaround was available (direct call of the 3D electron density distribution program).
