Re: Breaking the bond of molecule in IRC run

Fabian Weber

Hi Pavel,

as far as I know it is not possible to break a bond using IRC. A better way would be to use a relaxed surface scan.  This way you can get a curve dependence energy on distance, but you have to be careful! Your multiplicity may change with your bond-length (dissociation into two radicals), but you can give only one multiplicity in your input!

best regards,
