Re: Breaking the bond of molecule in IRC run

Alex Granovsky

Hi Pavel,

regardless how exactly will you break the bond, use the computational
procedure allowing correct description of the bond breaking process.

For PH3, of methods available with Firefly this means CI, MCSCF
or MCQDPT2/XMCQDPT2 (some people would argue that spin-symmetry
broken UHF or UDFT will do the job as well).
