I have attached full inputs and outputs.

In short, I used B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) supplemented with diffuse functions on the oxygen atoms.

>Regarding the solvation energy for LiF dissociation: have you taken into consideration that LiF dissociates homolytically in the gas phase but into an ion pair when in solution? As such, I think you cannot obtain solvation energies by simply comparing gas phase and solvation phase calculations.

My computed data refer to heterolytic dissociation. I am not really interested in the LiF system: I only used it as a quick "toy-system" to evaluate how the presence of two separated cavities influenced the PCM-computed energies.
