parameterization of COSMO
« on: June 10, 2015, 06:13:21 PM »
Hi there,

I'm wondering if someone can tell me how COSMO is parameterized (basis set, level of theory) or if there is a publication where it is discussed in detail.

My question is related to a publication from 2010 "Comment on the Correct Use of Continuum Solvent Models" by Ho et al. (J. Phys. Chem. A 2010, 114, 13442–13444) where it is stated that the solvation energy should always be calculated at the same level of theory as the CSM is parameterized.

Thanks a lot.

There is even a book about it, written by Andreas Klamt.
