Re^2: $IRC keyword definition

Luca Maidich

Dear Dr. Granovsky,
thanks for you suggestions. In my case the problem turned out to be the precision in locating the transition state because I needed to switch from the default convergence (1e-5) to 1e-6.
I also verified that the keyword FORWRD leads to different products depending on the given value (.T. or .F.).

Many thanks for the help
