Solvation models and COSMO in Firefly 8


Dear all, dear professor Granovsky,

in a post 1.5 years ago it was announced that Firefly 8 will contain "initial steps towards COSMO and variants of PCM other than DPCM":

In the same thread I read that at this time COSMO was not available.

Can the latest version of Firefly 8 do COSMO - or similar - calculations, and what keywords do I need to invoke COSMO?

Or a more general question: Which kinds of PCM calculations can the latest version of Firefly do, which are the best, and which keywords do I need?

(I'm doing calculations on Caesium-Enolates and I'd like to calculate the solvation in CH2Cl2. With ORCA I found that solvation may change as much as 13 kcal/mol in my reaction using COSMO-BP86/TZVP calculations. For many reasons I'd like to use Firefly instead of ORCA and therefore I need a solvation model in Firefly.)

Best regards,
